With so much business being done online nowadays, online and website security (also cybersecurity) should be taken very seriously and equally important as your business insurance policies. The cost of implementing and managing online security is a business overhead that must be included in business setup and investment finance planning.
it is foolish thinking your business will not be exploited online
For the same reason you take out buildings insurance, it is foolish thinking your business will not be exploited online by hackers wanting to steal valuable information. Due to the dynamic nature of technology and the openness of the internet, security measures must be constantly managed to prevent vulnerability to attack.
the cliché holds true - your online security is as strong as its weakest link
If your business accepts, transmits and stores customer personal information using online forms, email telephone, website or internal databases you are at risk and have a very important legal duty (GDPR) to protect this information. As with all security, the cliché holds true - your online security is as strong as its weakest link and the management of online security must be performed by strategically by experienced online technology professionals who understand the full scope of security.
So please don't take online and website security for granted. Give it top priority when starting and running your business. Here's a video by an online business owner you may recognise - Protecting your business online, with Peter Jones.
