Dear Fellow Business Owners:
Do you know that thousands of websites, such as yours. are hacked on a daily basis? You might not even be aware of it unless the hackers chose to leave evidence. Maybe they did not because they like being able to return at will. And be inside your site! Inside your business! Prowling and searching and taking.
Every day, business owners lose sensitive data, money, or incur irreparable damage to their reputation due to security vulnerabilities in their computer security systems and websites. Malware is only a part of it. You are most certainly vulnerable in more than one area of your system, if you know it or not. The only question is what, if anything, you are going to do about it.
Outdated content management systems, poorly coded plugins or design flaws are just some of the vulnerabilities hackers can exploit to gain unauthorized access to your site and, from there, access your private databases and modify your site’s pages to, for example, load viruses onto your visitors’ computers or display illegal or offensive content. And I haven’t even mentioned the more destructive and exotic types of malware here.
Unfortunately, hiring a cybersecurity company to perform a security audit of your computer system can be extremely expensive, often costing several thousand dollars. But you may already be aware of this. And I’ll bet you’re also smart enough to know how much it will cost you personally to just ignore it.
You can instead obtain your own security, without having to hire people you don’t know to go into your private systems. And by doing it yourself, you can be sure what is and what is not included. One way to establish cyber security safety is to begin to plug the gaps, and obtain what is needed most today, and get the rest over a period of time that you designate.
This is not all or nothing today. You can build a safe system over time.
By taking charge of the process yourself, you will always know where you are in your quest for cyber security.
If you are adept enough to operate your own computer systems, then you can certainly take charge of this process. You can download the entire process yourself. Or possibly you might prefer to have someone you know and trust to take it over process, but with you monitoring the every step of the way.
Either way is fine, at least you are taking action.
Make no mistake: Malware is not just coming.
Malware is here!
You wouldn’t want these shaggy people slipping quietly into your home without your knowledge. Why would you permit them in your computer security system?
