Online security

According to statistics from the last year, known data breaches have surged to 36 billion dollars in the first three quarters of 2020. But what about all those unreported ones?

Have you ever thought about keeping your web host's IP and domain information hidden from the public? Or have you ever heard of untraceable web hosting payable by bitcoin? Let's find out the safest way to host your online project.

Definitely gone are those days when a website operating (or even a computer system operating) required extensive and specific knowledge. Building and launching a new website is trimmed down to finding a proper site builder like Word Press or Craft CMS, choosing a domain name, getting your content ready, and finding a reliable and secure web hosting service. Especially the last one, finding the best hosting service is essential for your online data security.

Cybercriminal activity - the problem of these days

These days, set up and launch a new website takes just a few clicks. No wonder that the number of sites worldwide shows exponential growth. And so does the amount of cybercriminal activity. Attackers don't hesitate to breach any online project. There are countless reasons for it - ransom, competitor espionage, security breaches, censorship, political motives - you name it. Some hackers might even do it just for fun, or only to prove that they can. Luckily, on the other hand, ethical hackers are hacking with the intent to expose your system's weaknesses.

Furthermore, there is a rising number of malware and virus threats. The new form of malware called ransomware has become very popular lately. Ransomware attacker threatens to publish the user's sensitive data or simply block access to it unless a ransom, mostly in bitcoin is paid. These attacks often took place in essential sectors like banking and healthcare. However, based on the recent attacks (Colonial Pipeline Company, Buffalo Public Schools, etc.), hackers can target any profitable subject capable of paying a ransom. The rate of publicly disclosed data breach attacks by the end of September 2020 (Q3) was nearly 50%.

The Covid pandemic made this situation even worst. Many people working from the home offices with weaker security (unsecured internet connection, outdated antivirus software, etc. ) are literally like bait for hackers. Truth be told, cybercrime numbers have expanded by an incredible 600% for the last 18 months.

How to secure your online data

These days anyone can find out who is hosting your website - WHOIS (domain registration record). Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and financial information are the most frequently exposed types in all data breach attacks. Attackers can easily disclose all the data like payment methods used, IP addresses, and most importantly, your email addresses. Then it's just a piece of cake to link your identity to the attacked website and ask for ransom.
