As we’ve all witnessed, 2017 has been the year of cyberthreats. Not many people and businesses can boast about not having fallen victim to cyber attackers as well as various forms of malicious software. To better prepare ourselves for such dangers, we have come up with a list of basic differences between a pair of them – ransomware and scareware.
If your business is present in the online world, then you must be aware of various Social Media platforms and the way they connect you directly with your customers. As the world gets more and more dynamic, so does your promotion – as much of your content as it does of your business as a whole. That’s why it’s important to stay in the race, by approaching your customers where they spend most of their time and through channels they most do it on – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+, Pinterest, etc.
If you are running a small business (or a little bit bigger, why not), one of the things to think about is the importance of securing your website. But apart from that, if you want to connect with your customers and provide them with the means to actually make a purchase (regardless whether it is a product or a service you are selling) or just make an inquiry, you must have a contact form on your website.
As you already know if you have a WordPress powered website, WP is the biggest CMS platform in the world. It powers almost 60% of all websites while more than 28% of website content is managed by it. This means that WordPress manages over 66 million websites, while at least 17 blog posts are published through it every second.
As you must be aware, 2017 has been a cyber security nightmare. With constant and diverging cyber attacks, rare are those who can claim to have not fallen victim to black hat hackers this past year. Ransomware attacks such as WannaCry, NotPetya and Locky had the greatest effect on those who live and work in the cyberspace, but things are not so abstract as you might think. Aside from targeting vast amounts of money, cyber attacks have also come so far as to endanger people’s lives by targeting hospitals and medical equipment that keep countless people alive.
Having that kind of reach over our lives is anything but innocent, so we have come up with a comprehensive list of cyber threats to prepare for in 2018.
