Did you know that website security is just as important for small businesses as it is for large corporations? In fact, more small business websites are hacked on a daily basis than corporate websites. Do you know why? It’s due to the fact that all corporate websites have a high level of website security. That does not mean that they are impossible to hack, however it does mean that they are more difficult to hack. Typically speaking, unless the cyber thief has a specific mission, they will go for the low lying, easier to reach fruit first.
That means that most computer hackers will target small businesses because they know there is a lower level of website security if there is any website security at all. That means you need to ensure that your website is protected with an effective website security system. The good news is that you don’t have to break the bank for it. We can help you get set up with a strong website security system at an affordable price. You may have read or heard that large corporations spend millions of dollars per year on website security and it kind of scared you off.
You need to keep in mind that large corporate websites have significantly more information and data to protect than you do. They may have millions of customers and conduct millions of credit card transactions on a daily basis. That means they need to spend millions of dollars each year to protect all of those customers and their credit card transactions. On the other hand, you are dealing with a small fraction of that. Your website may or may not even process credit cards or debit cards. However, either way you still need to protect your vulnerable information and valuable assets.
If you do not have website security on your small business website and it gets hacked it will negatively impact your business. If any sensitive customer or client data is stolen it can ruin your reputation. When the reputation of a small business is ruined for any reasons it can be incredibly difficult to come back from. That means a computer hack may very well put you out of business. The bottom line is that you need to do everything in your power and within your budget to protect your customers or clients, and yourself.
Think of website security as an insurance policy. You would not drive your automobile without being insured. You would not drop your homeowners or renters insurance just to save a few bucks. The same holds true with website security. You hope to never need it, but you are glad it’s there when and if needed. You just never know when a disaster will strike.
