As more businesses can be found online each day, websites have inevitably become susceptible to scams.
Static websites and particularly e-commerce websites, that process payments online and customer data need advanced security settings to protect both you and your customers.
The buck stops with business owners to protect the information being exchanged between them and their visitors on their website. Websites without SSL certificates are considered insecure, illegitimate and distrusted sites are are the ideal targets for scammers or hackers.
