A top concern for many small business owners is how secure their website, computer system and information are. A web site serves as a virtual storefront for your products or services, so you’ll want it to be robust enough that only your customers can access it and use it. You’ll also want to make sure any sensitive data like credit card numbers or login information is kept safe at all times.
You need a security solution on your web site that will protect you from malicious attacks, identity theft, viruses, hackers, unauthorized access attempts and denial of service. You also need protection against internal misuse such as phishing attacks or sites with illegal or adult content. An up-to-date version of an anti-virus software program should be installed on each computer system that has access to your servers. Only use applications that are approved by your vendor for use on their products.
