Help! Someone stole my website!

How do businesses protect themselves?
Get your website certified if you haven’t already done so – it’s a simple step, relatively inexpensive and demonstrates that you care about your customer’s security and builds trust. We are heading towards this being the de facto state of affairs, so don’t wait.
Keep your public face under review. By this we mean ensure that your business details are consistent across all the platforms you use. Claim your Google my Business entry. Keep your details fresh, accurate and relevant.
Not only can Google my Business serve as a check for customers, as the owner of the entry you should be notified should a hacker try and alter your business information. Do remember to check the email that you claimed GmB with regularly.
Make sure that your business details are accurate and consistent across all the social media platforms you use to connect with your customers. It builds trust in you as a competent business and makes it easier for customers to reassure themselves that you are who you say you are before contacting you.
There isn’t one simple solution to ensuring your business security, making yourself secure and staying that way will involve ongoing time and effort.
