From the perspective of a business owner, the web can be a terrifying place, ripe with threats. We’ve compiled a list of our favorite web security videos that will make you want to disconnect from the internet and hide.
These videos can be scarier than a haunted house. They could keep you sleeping with one open in the server room for weeks. But if we view them as informative rather than frightening, we can learn some important lessons to incorporate into our web security practices. The more you know, the better you can prepare.
The web security fear: Most breaches happen without you knowing it.
Lesson learned: Proper intelligence and reporting can help you patch up weaknesses before your data is compromised.
The web security fear: Hackers are always looking for new ways to get your data, whether you run a small business or a Fortune 500 company.
Lesson learned: Anti-virus software is not enough. Education and anticipating attacks is the best way to protect your data.
The web security fear: Because of PHP vulnerabilities, SQL injection still happens, and way too easily.
Lesson learned: Use prepared statements in your databases, and keep up with the latest web security guidelines.
And to lighten the mood a bit, we are sharing the YouTube channel for J4vv4d, who uploads funny infosec videos.
