The extent of the damage a malware attack can have on your website typically depends on a number of variables, not the least of which is your response time. The longer it takes to detect and remove malware, the more expensive the recovery process becomes. Unfortunately, many types of malware are deliberately designed to keep themselves concealed for as long as possible. Eventually, however, the symptoms of a malware-infected website can become hard to miss.

As a website owner, chances are you’ve heard a great deal about malware. But you may wonder what exactly malware is, and why it’s such a serious threat to your website and your site’s visitors. In this article, we’ll cover some of the most common types of malware that every website owner needs to know in order to protect their business from cyber threats, as well as how to protect you site with the right malware removal solution if your site is infected.
Even a company with the most sophisticated cybersecurity tools and expert security teams can fall prey to cybercriminals if they overlook one area of vulnerability: their people. Humans can be distracted, intimidated and especially – misled. In fact, 97% of us can’t tell a phishing email from a legitimate one. Cybercriminals know this, which is why phishing attacks account for more than 80% of reported security incidents and why 54% of companies say their data breaches were caused by “negligent employees.”
Businesses of any size can fight back by providing their employees security awareness training and implementing other security best practices across their organization. This kind of cost-effective program can help your employees to understand cyber threats. That knowledge can empower them to protect your organization by spotting red flags and reporting them to IT.
According to recent research, malware currently infects an estimated 12.8 million websites globally. These infections make sites vulnerable to takeovers, defacement and data breaches from bad actors looking to tarnish site reputations and turn a profit – and the costs can be devastating for businesses. In fact, the average data breach now costs businesses $1.9 million, which is enough to significantly impact any organization – regardless of size.
To avoid the harmful impacts of a cyberattack, businesses should get proactive about protecting their site now, before the damage is done. Here are our top 4 cybersecurity tips your business can deploy now to get proactive on preventing data breaches, site defacement, DDoS attacks and other threats that put your sites at risk.
