For Magento users: Read how to defend your webshop from Magecart here
Your website is your brand, your storefront and the first contact with customers. It is your identity. If it is not secure, business relationships can be compromised and a single security breach can be a death-knell for your business.
The threats can come in many forms:
Security breaches may not only affect your consumers, it also affect you and your business. Breaches can come with high fines, penalties and other costs. Your business can be only successful if you build up trust and a vital relationship to your customers. Even if a security breach at a small business website maybe doesn’t trigger a data breach, it can still have a huge impact on customer trust.
The most reason why people don’t lock up their website is lack of awareness of the risk and consequences. Many falsely believe being a small business means being too small to be noticed by hackers. Most hackers are using automated tools to find vulnerable sites and they don’t differentiate between small and enterprise businesses. Threats and attacks are everywhere, be prepared now.
If you see anything suspicious, the checkout looks weird, or you detect anomalies in your transaction processing - reach out to your established Klarna contact (for example delivery manager or merchant support) immediately.
