MBA1175 Q&A Wednesday: Do I need to make my site https? If so, how?

Is your business website secure?

As more and more business is done online, cyber security is beyond important. It’s Q&A Wednesday, and one listener wants to know if it’s possible to run a successful business with an “http” address, rather than a full on “https.”

That little letter makes all the difference, especially in the way potential customers view your business.

Before you start to worry, don’t. This episode isn’t overly technical, and it won’t go over the heads of even the most tech-unsavvy entrepreneurs. But it is crucial to understand the purpose of https URL’s, and what to do if your website doesn’t have one.

Visitors to your site need to be able to trust you with their most sensitive information. This goes beyond security, affecting your payment processing, your SEO and traffic, and ultimately, your sales. Fortunately, there are plenty of resources out there to secure your site and keep your business running smoothly. Find out how it all works — Click Play!
