Why website security is important for your business

Your website showcases your brand to the world. If compromised both revenue and reputation are at risk.

  • Why spend thousands developing a website to showcase your brand and not protect your investment?
  • What happens if a hacker targets your website?
  • How would you recover your website?
  • Who would you call?
  • How can you best protect your business?

Website Security Health Check

Why would a hacker be interested in my website?

Most attacks don’t target businesses directly; automated processes seek victims with weak security regardless of industry, size or status. Often smaller businesses are a soft target for the attacker whose motivation is to access your website and host malicious activities.

It is vital for an attacker to remain undetected, so you could be compromised for quite some time without knowing.

How do websites get compromised?

Attackers know about vulnerabilities in common platforms, such as WordPress, Drupal, Umbraco, etc. These can range from technical exploits to simple password guessing attacks. Rather than attacking specific sites, they set their net wide and scan the Internet for targets matching the vulnerabilities they have exploits for.

Isn’t everything secure by default?

Sadly no, as the Internet and technology have evolved there are very few platforms and solutions that are identical. This gives the attackers many potential avenues to explore, especially if you are using older versions of technology.

What is the impact to me?

Even if you don’t take payments or hold sensitive data, a compromise will have a financial impact in both recovery time and costs as well as reputational impact. Reacting to a breach can be stressful and finding people to help at short notice is very expensive.

How do you test a websites security?

At RM Information Security, we have years of experience carrying out manual security assessments of all types of websites and technologies. This is commonly referred to as Penetration Testing. We are usually engaged by large enterprises where we use a mixture of tools, custom scripts, manual techniques and our 20+ years of IT experience to test for weaknesses and then provide recommendations on how to improve security.

Is it expensive?

No! Penetration testing is expensive, however building on our corporate experience we have designed a service called “Website Health Check” focussed on smaller businesses to provide a good level of security at an accessible price.

How does it work?

Provide us with your URL and complete our simple order form to authorise the test. The testing is automated and usually takes around a day. Once completed our consultants will collate, review and securely send you the report.

Improve your security

The true value of the health check is realised when you implement the recommendations and improve the security of your business. Our reports include detailed descriptions of any findings and we are always available to support you via our dedicated help desk.
