Last week, my blog post was called “Brace Yourself, Your Website is Going to Get Hacked!” Yet, most people reading this article didn’t do anything about it. But the fact is that globally, 30,000 websites get hacked every single day. Every 39 seconds, there is a new attack somewhere on the web. It is only a matter of time before it happens to you.
Email is responsible for about 94% of all malware. That is why I put together a social engineering awareness test, which you can take yourself. there is no charge – not even your email is required. I strongly urge you to take this test and see if you are vulnerable. Just visit: https://webstoresltd.com/phishing-awareness-test/
How did you score? If you didn’t get 100%, please join me for a webinar on February 28th at 2:00pm Mountain Time. Here is the registration link: https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_znkUKC3cTBK7k30g9oRu_A
This test is just one of 10 different bonuses I have provided with my new book, Cyber Wars: The Battle for Your Data. If you didn’t pick up a copy yet here are a few thoughts from some industry experts.
And if you did grab a copy during the launch day promo, I would really appreciate it if you could leave a positive review on Amazon. Reviews are the lifeblood of any product, whether your have a book on amazon or you are selling your own product on your own website. One study found that 88% of consumers trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations, and 72% of consumers say positive reviews make them trust businesses more.
Notice how I am leveraging user-reviews as images in this article. This is a great technique that I recommend for anyone selling online.
Whenever I put out promotional content, I always try to make this be a teachable moment as well. Notice how I explained the power of user generated content and reviews and how this can help you. I explained in an article earlier this year how Google ranks pages higher with video content and that it is important to have a video associated with every product listing and every page on your website. But this article is specifically about cybersecurity, so here then are my top 10 things you should do to protect your website. Enjoy!
