Even though I have switched industries to marketing, I still dabble in the medical field from time to time. Last week I was in a patient’s room and she had Dr. Phil on. He was talking about wireless home security system hackers terrorizing a family. You can watch a clip of the episode here, Terrorized by Technology: Held Hostage by Our Smart Homes. As soon as the family realized they had been hacked, the police were called. During that call, you could hear the cyber criminals from inside the system talking about what was happening. When the police arrived at the family’s home, they asked the voices to identify themselves. They laughed … so creepy, right?!

Technology is wonderful. However, as with anything else, there are pros and cons. For a lot of us hard-working Americans, it’s difficult to imagine someone could just sit at a computer all day causing problems for other people. But that is the unfortunate reality.  Cyber security has never been more important.

This is also true for businesses.  It’s imperative to protect your website from the cyber criminals of the internet. Take a look at these other Digital 55 blogs, “Do You Have an SSL Certificate on Your Website” and “Help! My WordPress Has Been Hacked!”. The first will help you keep your site protected and the second will guide you in the process of data recovery if you’ve already had a problem.

Perhaps now is more important than ever to ensure your cyber security. If your website gets hacked, you can expose your company’s – as well as your customer’s – personal information. Our customers demand security and so should you.
