Security is one of the most important and often the most overlooked aspect of doing business on the web. Failure to secure your website will bring attackers and spammers from the world over.
The Costs of Security Failure
This article from 2015 states: “The Global Risks 2015 report, published in January by the World Economic Forum (WEF), included this rather stark warning: “90 percent of companies worldwide recognize they are insufficiently prepared to protect themselves against [cyber attacks].”
Estimates from the Center for Strategic and International Studies put global cyber crime costs at over $400 billion dollars annually.
Failure to provide adequate security measures are costly for small and large businesses alike. Think about how many times you have heard or read about a company being attacked and customer data stolen. And it’s happened to some of the most recognized companies in the world.
Security failures will cost you money and reputation. They will hurt your business.
