With cyberattacks on the rise during the Coronavirus pandemic, getting familiar with cybersecurity will benefit your business website in the short and long term. We’ve done many posts and even webinars on Web Security. However, there’s still, an overwhelming number of people who don’t know what web security is and why it’s an essential aspect of a business website or e-commerce site

To cover the basics of website security, we’ll answer the top three questions that people ask about web security. 

What is web security?

Web security means protecting your website from phishing, malware and ransomware attacks. It entails detecting and preventing cyberattacks by cybercriminals or hackers. Cybersecurity protects your customers’ data and private information as well as guards you from financial losses and having your brand identity compromised. 

Why is website security important? 

Website security is vital to protect your business ability to function as well as your customer data and privacy. Customers lose trust when a website has been hacked, and that will affect your bottom line.  

Does a padlock mean a website is secure?

The padlock means that a webpage is secure. It means that the connection between the browser and website is encrypted and unauthorized persons will not have access to the information exchanged.
