Stunned Facts About Hacking And Online Security

Be Protected For Better Online Security

Be safe rather than sorry!

You Are Hacked

 

 

 

 

 

 

Came across an infographic from American Internet Services (AIS) which revealed some interesting statistics:

  1. A 6 characters (with only lowercase) password takes only 10 minutes to crack.
  2. A 156 days time lapse from compromised till detection.
  3. 90% of American businesses suffered some form of computer hack over the past 12 months.

 

Improve your website security by adopting some of the following measures:

  • Update your anti-virus and malware program, themes, plugins.
  • Schedule periodic virus scans of your computer equipment.
  • Use a strong password.
  • Don’t open attachments that you are not aware of the source.
  • When using software, themes and plugins, check their credibility before downloading.
  • Don’t forget to backup.
  • Consider using two factor authentication.

You are responsible for your own online security.
