White Paper: 5 Steps To Securing Your Business Website And Its ContentSource: AVG Technologies USA, Inc.
The bad guys will try to hack your website and use it to phish people off to poisoned Web pages, or even hack your website and put download exploits onto your Web pages. They succeed in doing this to hundreds of thousands of Web pages a day.
You don't want your website being hacked in this way because all of the money you've invested in search engine optimisation (SEO), search engine marketing (SEM), brand reputation and customer loyalty can disappear overnight.
The bad guys will also try to exploit website software errors to access customer information in the databases the website utilises, or to put through fraudulent transactions.
