October, Cybersecurity Month
October is Cybersecurity Month.
You may be tired of hearing this trendy buzzword, but there’s a reason behind it:
Getting hacked is very expensive.
Your website is a target…
We’re all in hackers’ crosshairs. Get your free analysis of your current situation in less than 5 minutes.
It is costly in terms of time, money, credibility, resources, management, loss of all kinds, etc.
Good practices are therefore very important and, in October, it’s a good time to remember them. Yes, you may have done training or received information on the subject, but memory is a faculty that forgets!
This is not the time to let your guard down.
Hackers are more active than ever and it is no longer true that piracy requires programming skills.
Piracy currently goes through two vectors:
1) Social hacking;
2) Companies that are not in their business.
Social hacking is simply the fact of using your social skills (email, call, text, …) to extract information that will allow you to pretend to be you or your company. No programming required. Imagine the damage if someone calls your bank and has all the information they need to impersonate you… ouch!
On the other hand, hackers prey on companies that are not in their business. Those who do not update, for example. Those who use software that is not up to date and is vulnerable.
With a maintenance package for your WordPress site, it’s a step in the right direction, but it doesn’t stop there!
We’ve put together a few resources to help you adopt best practices for your business.
