Online business security – take control before it’s too late

Posted on December 27, 2019 at 4:03 pm

Over the past few years, hacking and online fraud has become an increasingly bigger risk and is something that is a very real threat to many ecommerce businesses.

If you have a website that sells products online then it is vital that you ensure that the software, you use, or any applications are always up to date. As a responsible website owner, you need to try and keep your customers security in the forefront of your mind. The website needs to be coded in such as way that uses the latest advances and offers protection against the code being manipulated. Updates are often created to add in security features to programs and therefore if an update is not done in a timely manner, you may be opening your business up to a cyber-attack. If your website has a content management system, this will also need to be updated. If you are using an off the shelf CMS system, you will usually be notified when an update is available, and it is then up to you to install it. If you use a bespoke content management system, then the programmers who designed it will need to make updates for you.
