“We don’t really need a full service web agency, we’re good.”
Sometimes, potential clients say something to that effect.
If you’re doing well, if profits are going up, it somewhat makes sense.
However, here at Website Depot, we take the “full service” line very seriously.
That means that we can boost your SEO, web design, online reputation management, social media marketing, and so much more.
But, it also means that we can help to keep your company safe and protected from online threats, too. As you may have seen in the news, that’s more important than ever.
Hackers Are Only Getting Better
“Between 800 and 1,500 businesses around the world have been affected by a ransomware attack centered on U.S. information technology firm Kaseya, its chief executive said on Monday.”
That’s an informative, even spooky article that’s worth your time.
Reuters does a very good job of summarizing news as it happens, but there was one sentence that I did bump against a bit.
“One of those (web security) tools was subverted on Friday, allowing the hackers to paralyze hundreds of businesses on all five continents. Although most of those affected have been small concerns – like dentists’ offices or accountants – the disruption has been felt more keenly in Sweden…”
All respect to Reuters, but if you were a dentist and they hacked your office, you wouldn’t see that as a “small concern.” The same goes for if you were an accountant and your files were hacked, or if the files of your accountant were hacked.
Obviously, we can’t protect everyone from every threat all of the time.
But, over the years, we have been able to upgrade our clients’ security. That way, they have less chance of being hacked, of having to deal with this.
Hopefully, you weren’t affected by this hack.
But, there will always be another hack. There are those out there who do this professionally, who are looking for ways to take over sites (and worse). We can work to reduce (or even eliminate) the possibility of that happening.
Keeping Track of Threats So that You Don’t Have to
No matter what industry they’re in, whether they’re personal injury attorneys, plastic surgeons, rehab/treatment center professionals, or doing literally anything else, all of our clients have one thing in common: they’re busy. They work. Each is a true professional at what they do.
So, they don’t have all the time in the world (or even any time whatsoever) to deal with finding out about online threats.
That’s something we can do.
That’s our job.
So, while we’re doing your online marketing, online reputation management, and all of that, we can keep you up to date on whatever digital storm clouds may be approaching on the horizon.
An example of that is: about the (90’s horror movie-like named) “PrintNightmare.”
While there’s no fool-proof way to avoid viruses, hackers, and the like forever, we can work to keep you protected. It’s one more part of what “full service web agency” means.
