So if you’ve found your way to this blog, you probably have some area of online expertise. Maybe you’re a designer or a marketer or the “idea guy” behind your startup. However, I’m going to go out on a limb and say that most of you probably aren’t high-end online security techs. Why, do you ask? ‘Cause there are aren’t that many out there.
But security for your startup is important. If you were a traditional business, you’d buy all of the right locks and cameras to protect your assets — and you should be doing the same for your website. However, just like you wouldn’t (or, at least, shouldn’t) install your own security system unless you’re an expert, you shouldn’t be in charge of your own security for your online business.
Enter Secur1ty.com, a new site that is all about improving the security of your website. The site not only connects you with security experts that can help you make sure your site is secure but also provides you with security tools that you can use for free. (Okay, so a little bit of DIY security is probably a good thing…)
The site also keeps their community up to date on the latest news in the world of online security (so you know when the next big hack hits), lets you rate your site’s security, and gives you steps that you can take to improve your security.
You startup founders know that your most valuable asset is your website, but most of you aren’t taking the right steps to protect that asset. Ignorance is no excuse for a website full of security holes — and neither is a low budget — so get over to Secur1ty.com and sign up for early access to their online security community today. Otherwise, you just might find yourself on the wrong side of the next big online security breach.
And guess just how much that’ll cost you.
