Top threats to your business

By Jorisse G | Friday, 1 September 2017

Some things are a threat to your business. Some things are not. What's definitely not a threat is a planet four times the size of the Earth coming to destroy us all.

Another day, another crazy conspiracy theory that the world is going to end. This time, it's not Mayan. It's apparently an ancient Sumerian prophecy about the fictional planet Nibiru. However, your website – and your business – could be threatened by other forces.

Luckily, some things are still under your control, especially when you have the help of a Crazy online solutions provider.

Things that could threaten your business:

Data loss

Rather than worry about losing your business to planetary destruction, worry about data loss. Losing any type of data can adversely affect your operations. Even when there is no financial risk attached to the data you lost, there can still be significant negative effects.

This is especially true if the data happens to be unrecoverable. Consider this: 60% of small and medium businesses that experience data loss are projected to shut down within the next 6 months.

As it happens, there is a way that you can protect all your files, photos and more. With Cloud Backup, you get unlimited backup for your PCs, Macs and other devices, all in one account.

Security breaches

Any breach in security can be distressing, especially when you have to constantly worry about it happening again. To prevent this, make sure that you have proper security measures in place.

With Website Protection and Scanner, you can rest easy knowing that your site is well protected against malicious hackers and other threats.

Unusable (badly designed) websites

Web design is a crucial aspect for any business. Not just the look of the site, but all of the functionalities as well. This is why you need to make sure that your website has a simple, professional look. Look into the web design of your site, or you can opt to create your own look and feel by going for an easy Web Builder that lets you create exactly what you want to see.

Not being found online

Getting a website that's modern and professional is half the work. Other stuff you need to put focus on include being found online. This is why it's important for you to make sure that your website has the exposure that you need. Take the first step by making sure to incorporate SEO so that your website can be found by the right audience.

What is not a threat to your business:

Nibiru/Planet X

The chances of your business getting annihilated by an alien planet along with humanity and everything else may be a long stretch yet.

And while NASA has confirmed the presence of a planet in deep space, named Planet X, it's best to worry about things you can control. Extinction-level events tend to be unstoppable anyway. If it helps, scientists have already debunked the idea that a planet or any object of similar size will collide with or pass by the Earth and destroy us all.

Time to go back to the real world, then.
