Security is one thing that you worry about when owning a business. Unfortunately, there are many things that can happen to compromise your security, one being online viruses or malware. This is something that not only everybody needs to be aware of, but something people need to know to stay safe. It is important to be cognizant about what you click on because the last thing you want is to unintentionally download a virus.
According to Tech Republic, “The sophistication and ability to attack and paralyze websites will continue to grow at dramatic pace. For example in 2011, there were 1,596,905 DDoS (distributed denial-of-service attacks) compared to 120,321,372 in 2012. As businesses of all sizes continue to move services and infrastructure to the cloud, the issue of DDoS will be high on many agendas at it has the potential to quickly cripple entire cloud infrastructures.”
