Summary section - Unfortunately, when all an attacker has to do is find one mistake, one gap in your defenses, cybersecurity takes getting everything right. To help get a comprehensive bird's eye view we continue to refine our 100 point cybersecurity checklist to help make sure you don't overlook any critical concerns leaving vulnerable blind spots.
"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." said Benjamin Franklin in 1736 as he was trying to advise his fellow Philadelphians to implement the impressive fire prevention measures he had seen put into place in Boston.
And so here we also beseech you to take preventative measures. We've had multiple companies come to us to fix hacked websites, hacked email accounts and lost data. Believe me, you take these things for granted until they're gone.
Don't believe you're immune because you're just a small or medium enterprise, or in a niche industry no one cares about, or aren't very public-facing. Hackers take advantage of complacency, and know that companies that think they're off the radar can be guilty of it and hence easy targets. Not to mention a lot of hacking is automated, so their scripts come after you no matter who you are.
Every country is unique in their business requirements and China is no different. Due to the government's attention to online activities it is necessary for every website owner to be very transparent to the government regarding their ownership and management. The vehicle for this is the ICP License, a necessary step for organizations wishing to publish their website online via Chinese servers.
“ICP License” is the abbreviation for “Internet Content Provider License”. It is a permit required by the Chinese government to host your website in mainland China. After getting your domain and hosting, applying for ICP license is essential before you can launch your website. When you successfully get it, a small print of your ICP license number needs to be put at the footer of your webpages.
