Want to Secure Your Website for Under $500?

January 11 2011

privacy200pxI had no idea how much there was to know about website protection. Most of what we hear about is the information “security” side of the coin, which is making sure that hackers can’t intrude into your system and your malware/ virus protections are current. This gets most of the press and is definitely important.

There is an entirely different side to the coin of information security- that’s the legal side, which includes “privacy,” “intellectual property”, and “liability” matters. And the coin of this realm in the real estate industry is minted with the image of the Privacy Guru®, Darity Wesley.


Now that privacy is getting more media attention and legislation is being considered and enacted around the country, and the National Association of REALTORS® now has a ‘Data Security and Privacy Toolkit’, it’s time to get serious about it. I know we did and we knew exactly who to call.

Darity just conducted a Website Risk Analysis™ for the WAV Group website. This thorough analysis reviewed more than 100 aspects of our site and provided us with a detailed report of their findings and recommendations. Then seeing that we needed some help, we put the Privacy Gurus® to work and for less than $500, we got done what was needed.

Why did we do it? Well, the Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission are surfing the Internet and are busily addressing complaints daily. And since you never know where a visitor to your site might hail from due to the borderless accessibility of the Internet, every website is pretty much subject to every state law.

It all started when we took asked for a free Website Risk Check and read our results.
