An Infographic: How Secure is Your Website When Compared to Your PC?

Internet usage and web security go hand in hand. With the exponential growth of Internet traffic over the last decade, online security threats have grown by leaps and bounds too, and the recent flurry of WordPress attacks is a testament to it.

The number of online accounts that get compromised on a daily basis clearly indicate that a great majority of  website owners isn’t particularly cautious about their website’s  security.

Web Hosting provider HeartInternet recently conducted a research among small business website owners and home PC users to determine whether people take their website security as seriously as their PC security.

Predictably, the answer is no! The survey reveals that only 65% small business website owners have anti-virus software installed on their computers; a stark contrast to  96% of home PC users who have proper security set-ups in place.

The statistics are equally embarrassing when it comes to use of secure passwords, revealing that only half of small business websites protect their sensitive data with strong passwords, compared to 75% of the home users.

Now you don’t like to go through boring statistics, do you? Presented in this  good old 90s gaming theme inspired infographic are other  key findings of  the said security research, wrapped up with helpful tips to help you protect yourself against  hacking and online fraud.
