With Halloween here and the fun and frivolity of “spookiness” around every corner, it seems an appropriate time to address what we think is really scary for you and your business this year, and that is website hacking. You probably have heard about numerous hacking scandals over the past few months or years. Just look at the headings of articles on this TechNewsWorld hacking page.
Does Hacking Affect Your Business?
It’s not just the big corporations and businesses that attract hackers either. We’ve noticed here at OmniOnline a huge increase in the amount of hacking activity that is going on and the number of attempts to hack into our client’s websites. We’ve responded by taking numerous measures to beef up our security levels in order to protect our client’s websites from harm! If you’re not one of our clients, then who is protecting your website?
We think this kind of hacking activity is probably the new norm so you should not only come to expect it, but you need to be aware, vigilant in how you administer your website (extra careful on public computers, strong passwords that are changed from time to time, as well as software on both your local machine as well as your website that works to protect you from these types of attacks along with professionals who can identify threats and act fast to neutralize them) At OmniOnline, our team of professionals is always working at increasing the level of security that stands between your website and potential threats.
We aren’t trying to needlessly scare you or create panic or worry where there shouldn’t be any. We just thought it was a timely reminder that really scary people do actually roam around the Internet, not just at the end of October, but all the time. They’re looking to take advantage of others in any way they can. We’re committed to doing our very best to provide you with safe and secure websites that are free from harmful attacks. And if and when we identify these threats we’ll put our full resources towards eliminating them as quickly as possible so that your business can go on doing what it does best!
