Statistically speaking, if you are the owner of a website, it is very common to face cyber attacks. And here’s how you can deal with them:
#4 Phishing awareness
An online business or a website of any size have 67% chances of being cyber attacked and another 83% chances of being victims of phishing. What this means is that you have to be ready for them and one of the best ways to do it is by knowing what phishing is.
You must have heard of at least one incident where someone opens an e-mail and ends up either revealing a username and password for something very important, or just clicking a link that creates doom’s day for the e-mail server of an entire company. Don’t be that guy.
These e-mails are obviously fake and they’re designed to trick you into giving your password or any other confidential details. The purpose may vary, but the catastrophe is the same. The only way to avoid it is by being aware of it and acting accordingly.
If there are employees in your business, you can train them, so that they can easily identify and delete phishing emails. If you cannot do that, ask them to contact you or someone responsible for this, whenever they see something that looks even remotely suspicious.
You can also install and use email signing certificates that are very helpful and save you from too much trouble. Spam filters can also be very useful in this case, as they can automatically identify and reject phishing e-mails.
