Websites, while they are beacons to potential customers, they are also beacons to cybercriminals. To them, your website is a potential target.
With their automated bots trolling the World Wide Web seeking out unsuspecting websites, cybercriminals can quickly get into an unprotected site in seconds. Being a bot that doesn’t need any rest, it is only a matter of time they will visit you if you have not already been visited.
Once they gain entry into your website, the damage they can wreck can be significant and sometimes deadly.
It becomes worrisome and even nightmarish when you cannot get rid of them. You now have an unwanted guest within your site that can do untold damage at any time. The damage can be both financially and reputationally. The latter will most definitely impact your sales and revenue stream.
Apart from cybercriminals, you also have the regulators.
The regulators could also be problematic and nightmarish to deal with. They appear when there is a non-compliance on your website.
With most, if not all, countries awaking to the need of having privacy laws, website owners cannot ill afford to ignore not being compliant. Some of these laws like the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) have global jurisdiction.
Understanding these laws and taking steps to be compliant to them is the singular best defense you have when regulators come knocking.
So do not be caught off guarded.
