Cyber Security & Data Protection
Business managers constantly worry about their website security being compromised. An integrated approach is needed to shield every facet of your online properties at all times. This stops hackers from getting their hands on confidential information and shattering consumer trust.
Cybercrimes are happening more often, targeting businesses of all sizes…
Alarmingly, most companies take at least six months to detect a breach – as threats fly under the radar because of evolving technologies. Managers are spending at an unprecedented rate to manage this fallout. On a global scale, online attacks across industries, are projected to create a risk of total value of around US$5.2 trillion over the next 5 years
This is according to the Cost of Cybercrime study, which shows that web-based and malware traps unleash the greatest financial damage on businesses. It’s no longer good enough to rely on a few sturdy but isolated programs to defend your web assets. Criminals have become better at finding and exploiting weak spots in websites, applications and services.
All it takes is one employee to unwittingly click on a harmful link – your virtual walls come toppling down to expose the private data of your clientele, turning them off your website for good.
Research in the UK shows that 41 per cent of consumers will abandon a brand that’s compromised by a data breach. This can be catastrophic for any business. Fortunately it’s now possible to uphold your reputation by shielding data from most attacks. A website security system covers all the bases and regularly updates to stay one step ahead of hackers.
What is website security?
Web security is the systematic process used to protect websites, web applications and online services from attack.
It integrates multiple technologies to strengthen all vulnerabilities. Popular solutions include:
- Black box testing tools
- Fuzzing tools
- White box testing tools
- Web application firewalls (WAF)
- Security or vulnerability scanners
- Password cracking tools
Examples of common threats that are blocked by a quality web security system:
Cross-Site Scripting (XSS)
These attacks inject harmful scripts into the browsers of users. The code, which comes from a trusted website, exposes the site authorisation cookie to intruders, who can then access credit card details, change passwords and wreak havoc.
Cross-Site Request Forgery
A cyber-criminal is able to steal the credentials of another user to execute actions behind their back.
Users are tricked into visiting a malicious page by clicking on a trusted website and being directed to a different location.
Denial of Service (DoS)
Flooding a website with fake requests blocks access for genuine visitors.
