Website Security vs Cyber Security
This is a question that comes up often. What is the difference between website security and cyber security? The short answer is that cyber security focuses on the network of an organization including individual computers and IoT (Internet of Things) within an organizational environment. If you need assistance in this area, let us know. We can help. This is an extremely critical area and almost all companies have vulnerabilities that can be exploited no matter how hard they work to plug the holes. This service is available by quote only after speaking with a representative due to the sensitive nature of the content.
Then why not just say cyber security instead of website security? Because network “hardening” is a small (but critical) percentage of modern-day attacks. Today’s hacker often comes in through the front door. Email is one of the most widely used channels for hacking attacks. In fact, over 75% of companies attacked reported the use of fraudulent emails. If you are not easily frightened, you may want to take a look at this post regarding hacking trends. It is scary.
The next biggest hole in security is the website and this is independent (for the most part) from network security. More than 25% of the website population out there uses WordPress as the core CMS (Content Management System) and less than 10% of those have any type of security in place. Did you know that each WordPress release has an average of 10 vulnerabilities before you even look at hosting or data exploits? What is worse is that over 60% of smaller companies say they might not survive a hack. Other CMS platforms can be far worse.
More bad news? Many website owners don’t even know they have been hacked until it is too late and they have been blacklisted if the intruder is breaking in to setup their malware shop. Imagine a user comes to your site and finds out they have been duped into providing information to a hacker. Think those will be repeat customers?
