How much is protecting your business online worth?

Many SME’s often overlook the importance of investing in high-quality website hosting but did you know that a data breach is one of the worst things a business can experience? If your security is compromised or your website goes offline, the consequences can be damaging and long-lasting. Not only can you lose customers and money, but your reputation can also be severely damaged, crucial data can be lost and most importantly, in the future, you could face fines of up to 4% of your businesses annual turnover under the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). Clearly, investing in high-quality website hosting is crucial for creating a solid and secure foundation for your website. Put simply, you can have fantastic content and outreach but if your site is compromised, it can all amount to nothing.

74% of SME’s suffered a security breach in 2016 – Don’t be part of that figure in 2017

Whilst you may be sitting there thinking, “this isn’t relevant to me as I already invest in hosting”, it is important to note that in 2016, 74% of SME’s suffered a security breach of some kind – such breaches were a result of investing in cheap hosting packages or failing to invest in hosting at all. In recent months, we have also been witnessing an increase in large scale cyber-attacks such as the recent Wana Decrypt0r 2.0 attack and Petya. With the rise in cyber attacks across Europe, protecting your business online has never been so important.

At Netbiz Group we understand that choosing the right hosting package can be a difficult decision as there are so many options to choose from. The trouble is that there are many poor options out there which entice SME’s with attractive price tags. One thing that we like to point out to our customers, however, is that the average person pays up to £14.99 per month to insure their mobile phone yet many businesses pay significantly less to protect their businesses online – this leads to the question of how important is protecting your business online?
