Having spent time talking with literally lots of my fellow home business owners, I regularly move away from those conversations feeling a surpassing sense of dismay at the state of the information, network, or web site security of my peers. I understand that most home entrepreneurs have to perform plenty of fancy footwork in order to keep everything running along on a kind of even keel, and many feel that they simply don’t have time to attend to correct security.
Unfortunately, not taking the time now may mean not having a business to attend to later on down the line. For a good many entrepreneurs I have spoken with, their plan for coping with the hazards a potential hacker poses is to simply “hide in plain sight.” By that I mean, to do nothing at all, and hope that there are so very many hacking targets worldwide that they will simply be passed by.
