Every day we awake to another ransomware, malware or virus attack. I am sure you are tired of hearing about it. I can bet that you have even become numb to news about such attacks. Even worse I bet you feel there is nothing you can do about it.
If you run a business you cannot afford to be complacent. It’s not about you. It’s about your customers, your brand, your value and your exposure. So tune back in. There are ways to reduce the risk to attacks and exposure.
We will be walking through some of the risks over the next few weeks. Lets join hands to make you less vulnerable.
The first step you need to consider is to ensure an s is added to your HTTP in your browser, for your websites , online applications and portals.
HTTPS is a way to show that your site is secure. It is that simple. When you apply SSL to your site you get a green padlock attached to your website address like this https://www.company.com. Just like the one attached to our site, shown below.
This tells clients and people, coming to your site, that you have an extra layer of security attached to your website. It also tells them data transferred between the site and the user is through encryption.
Did you know that Google pays attention to whether a site has SSL? The do this because they care about their customers. They have gone even further to show how much they care that their customers have a secure and safe experience. The now display a warning message to users when they go to a website that does not have an SSL. The message tells the user that the site is not secure. You can imagine the subliminal message this sends to your clients. Not to mention the possible impact on your Google search rankings. Guess what Google is not the only one moving in this direction, Mozilla has done something similar.
The long and the short of this story is you need to make your clients feel safe. Which translates to adding an SSL to your site if you currently do not have one.
Please bear in mind that acquiring the SSL may require you to review your website to remove any features that may continue to make it vulnerable. To get the green padlock is no mean feat.
I know you value your customers and your security. If you are ready to get your HTTPS then we here to walk with you and get you there.
