Don’t let cyber attacks threaten your users’ trust and your bottom line. See how Verizon’s Web and Commerce Acceleration Solutions can help keep your websites and web applications safe and secure.
Securing your website against cyber attacks is a serious matter. Once your website has been compromised, it can be difficult to bounce back. According to a USA Today survey, 24 percent of Americans stopped buying online because of data breaches at Target, eBay and other companies; 56 percent of users reduced the overall number of internet websites they visited. Users place their trust in you, so your ability to safeguard their information affects not only your revenue, but your reputation too. Let’s put it this way: 700 million compromised records cost up to $400 million in lost revenue, according to the Verizon 2015 Data Breach Investigations Report. This is exactly why you need cloud-based website security to keep your websites fast and your web applications protected.
Between online retailers, financial institutions, governmental or regulated industries, technology companies and healthcare services, there’s a lot of information being processed online. Attackers will stop at nothing to steal sensitive data, personal identities and credit card information. And since the cyber threat landscape continues to evolve, website owners and designers need to be aware of any new cyber threat trends. In 2014, 79,790 security incidents and 2,122 confirmed data breaches were reported in 61 countries, according to the Verizon report. Many of the targeted victims were from the public, information and financial services sectors.
Attackers are getting smarter and more creative with their attacks. Different types of attackers (hackers, activists, organized criminals and state-affiliated groups) have various reasons for committing their crimes:
According to Hackmageddon.com, 55.2 percent of attacks in April 2015 were due to cyber crimes. These crimes included: stealing and leaking information, scraping data, capturing intellectual property, running extortion rackets, defacing websites, making websites unavailable and much more. What’s more alarming is how fast these types of attacks occur. In 60 percent of the cases Verizon studied, victims were compromised in just minutes!
