We are getting loads of businesses signing up to our outsourced website management services due to recent high profile hacks on the health service.
Businesses are rightly concerned about their website security. A hacked website can cause serious damage to your business revenue and reputation. Hackers can steal user information, passwords, install malicious software, and can even distribute malware to your users. You may even find yourself paying hackers just to let you back into your website.
If your website is a business, then you need to pay extra attention to your security. It’s the business owners responsibility to protect their physical store building, and as an online business owner it is your responsibility to protect your website – and GDPR also penalises those who shirk their responsibilities to website visitors.
That may all sound very dramatic – “it’ll never happen to me”, but many ‘hacks’ are just random viruses searching for out of date website software. Another risk is that Google blacklists around 25,000 websites every day for security issues (malware and phishing).
At exSite Communications we have created over 500 websites for businesses in Ireland and the UK. I invite you to read our latest blog series where I share tips on how to keep your website safe and secure. We mainly focus on WordPress security as it’s the most popular website content management system in the world, and has over 80% dominance in the Ireland and UK business website market.
Of course, if you’d like to outsource this responsibility for ensuring your website is secure, backed-up, monitored, and more – then please contact us. Website security is pretty turgid stuff so most people are bored by it, find it wastes huge amounts of their time, and get it wrong or muck up their sites. So, save yourself the trouble by coming to exSite 😉
