Website Security for All of Our Websites
With today’s internet environment, staying ahead of the unknown potential problems can be difficult. It has been estimated that over 9,500 websites are hacked every day. If hackers make their way on to your site, they can insert infected code into the back end of your website. This can cause issues for your practice, either through offensive images or viruses that infect the computers of patients that visit your website. Without website security, you are most likely to be hacked sometime down the road.
Why does your website get hacked?
We are often asked why anyone would want to hack into their website. The motives can vary. Some people just get a thrill out of breaking things. However, the main reason is money and there is money to be made.
Medical practices and pharmaceuticals are more of a target for hacking and spamming than other businesses. If they can break into your site they are hoping to gain access to emails, social security numbers of your patients, or just create “ransomeware” where you will have to pay big bucks to have them cleaned up.
