You get an email from a reader or potential sponsor of your website – and they attach an image showing a warning message that appeared to them while viewing your site showing links to obviously irrelevant content. When you visit your site everything appears as normal. What do you do next?
If you can’t resolve the problem quickly, it could lose you sponsorship money, turn readers away in droves or, even worse, spark rumors across social media that your site has been hacked and is spreading viruses. All these things can quickly damage your brand – maybe even irreparably. Can you afford to take that risk?
