Website Vulnerability Testing: What is it? Why is it important? And Do I need to do it?
You have no doubt heard tech experts saying ‘you need to check your website for vulnerabilities’, but you may not be sure what that entails. In this blog our experts from WV Solutions explain what vulnerability testing is, why it is important and who needs to do it.
Website vulnerability testing is the practice of detecting flaws in a website that could allow a hacker to steal sensitive data, or even take your website down. This is why it is important for businesses of all sizes to run regular checks to protect their online presence.
Why is website vulnerability testing important?
Vulnerability testing is essential for all businesses as it allows them to identity and mitigate any weaknesses in their websites. In today’s world websites are under constant attack by hackers who are out there to identify and exploit any vulnerabilities you have. However, through regular testing you can identify and repair these weaknesses before they are exploited, potentially saving you thousands of pounds.
