Not everything has to be Bold to make a big impression.
When you visit your own website (we all do it!), do you get a message telling you Your website is not secure or Attackers might be trying to steal your information?
If you’re seeing these notifications, then so are your website visitors. What does this mean for your business?
- People don’t feel safe buying from you;
- You’re telling people you’re not keeping their data safe;
- Your bounce rate could be increasing.
Imagine what that’s doing to your bottom line?
In May 2018, the EU introduced the General Data Protection Regulation to apply stricter measures to the handling and processing of personal information and demand tighter web security.
Anyone in breach of this regulation could be dealt severe financial penalties. We’re talking 20 million euros and upwards depending on your annual turnover.
It’s not worth the risk!
SSL certificate keeps your data safe
Your customers depend on you to keep their data safe.
Hackers exploit holes in your website’s security to access this sensitive information. Take action today with an SSL (secure sockets layer) certificate. In our Bold opinion, no website should be without one.
By placing an SSL certificate on your website, you will be able to see the “https” protocol at the beginning of your web address. This tells your visitors your website is safe as all data they submit will be encrypted between their computer and your server.
Not only does an SSL give customers confidence when shopping with your company online, but it can also positively impact your Google rankings. Nice bonus!
Can I purchase this with Bold?
Absolutely! If your website is hosted with us then you can buy it from us and we can do the rest of the hard work for you.
One simple action can keep data from being intercepted in transit. If you could take just one small step today to enhance your website’s security, why would you not go for it?
