If your website has ever been hacked before, you know what a headache it can be to get your site cleaned up and back on track. Even worse, the residual effects of compromised security may linger after the site is safe and secure again; lower positioning in search results, less traffic, and losing trust from your user base can cause problems well after the hacking takes place. What this means is that if your site gets hacked, the problem must be taken care of quickly and efficiently to help avoid any negative consequences.
The threat of having your website hacked is more real than ever. The hacker’s ability to spread malware and viruses through websites is growing, as seen by the high profile hackings of the United Nations, Facebook, and Twitter. The interconnectivity that is social media and Web 2.0 only makes it easier for hackers to affect more people, yet having your website optimized for social media is essential for doing business on the web. And whether or not your website is attacked would seem a matter of circumstance, as hackers are defacing and violating various types of websites. They steal information from wherever they can, and for a variety of purposes and reasons. Some new groups of hackers claim to be defacing and infecting websites as a means for social change. Some do it out of spite. Some do it to steal your information. The frightening truth is that no website is off-limits to hackers.
Many website owners are not aware that “70% of websites are at immediate risk of being hacked!” Cyber criminals and hackers tend to target websites with vulnerabilities. There are ways to protect yourself against hacker attacks and harmful intrusions. It means doing more than just installing a traditional firewall to protect your website. It means going above and beyond to ensure your website and company information is always secure. At Web312, we take website security very seriously and we have designed a simple plan to help protect your website.
