AIONCLOUD : Why is website security so important?
Your website is your brand and your first contact with customers. If your website is not secure, your business can lose customers confidence. Your website can be attacked in many different ways. The website is infected with malware in order to spread that malware to site visitors. Also, critical information, like name, email address, social number, and credit card, can be stolen from hackers. Unprotected website is a security risk to customers, other business and government sites. It spreads and escalates malware and attacks on other websites. Protecting your website is very important to build trust with customers and keep critical information safely.
You can think of protecting information simply in this way. When you leave your house for work in the morning, you probably lock the doors and set the alarm and also check that more than one time against unauthorized access, damage and theft. This same principle can be applied to your website. Your website should be protected against abnormal accesses and various attacks and the critical information cannot be accessed by anyone. If it left unprotected, it can bring down your businesses and even be used to commit harm.
