Why a website security check is important for your business

By showing you the constituent parts of your daily communication tool - your email - as well as your shop window into which your customers and suppliers will be gazing - your website - you will begin to learn about the paths through which cybercriminals ultimately gain access to your data & systems.

EMAIL & WEBSITE SECURITY - INTRODUCTION

Why a website security check is important for your business

While we are all using emails to communicate with our clients and projecting the corporate body via a website that is constantly updated with ever richer content, it may prove useful to take a step back and learn about the technical building blocks of these everyday tools. 

In order to look at the paths through which cybercriminals gain access to exploit inherent vulnerabilities, it is necessary first to break down to the core the constituent parts of your daily communication tool – your email, as well as your shop window through which you expect customers and suppliers alike to walk through – your website.

KW has produced a five-part series that looks specifically at the following:

Part I – WHAT’S A URL?  YOUR WEBSITE ADDRESS EXPLAINED

Part II – HOW TO PREVENT SPAM, PHISING AND OTHER EMAIL SECURITY ISSUES

Part III – WHAT SECURITY VULNERABILITIES LIE BEHIND YOUR WEBSITE’S CODE

Part IV – WHY UPDATING THE SOFTWARE THAT SUPPORTS WEBSITES IS GOOD PRACTICE

Part V – HOW TO SPOT WEBSITES THAT ARE NOT SECURE AND DANGEROUS

Each of these areas are fascinating fields of computer technology in their own right, but we specifically look at them as potential vectors, or avenues, through which outside threat actors gain knowledge about your data & systems.  Regrettably, they operate using open-source software which is growing in sophistication.  Rest assured, so too do the countermeasures.

Awareness is the first line of defence

Kloudwerk is able to readily assess precisely what it is that potential hackers can learn about your publicly exposed digital footprint, through our freely available Website Security Check.

Our aim is to explain the technology behind the surveillance tools and highlight potential vulnerabilities to make your on-line experience a more secure one. 

We hope you enjoy reading our research, designed for professionals who are not IT experts but thirsty for knowledge about the everyday tools to operate a business – your email and website.
