Many funeral homes take their online security for granted, assuming their website and obituary provider is taking their security seriously.
Unfortunately, not all funeral home technology companies understand online security or take it seriously enough. As a result, they are putting your website and obituaries at risk of being hacked!
We’ve discovered a major provider of funeral home technology has a programming flaw that puts thousands of obituaries at risk of being hacked! We will not name the company or describe the flaw because we do not want to put these websites at risk. Unfortunately, even though we’ve reached out to the company and have notified them of the security flaw, they have not responded to us and have not fixed the issue.
What can you do to ensure your website and obituaries are safe?
- Ask your technology provider what measures they have taken to ensure the safety of your online data.
- Ask your technology provider if they have a data backup strategy and what it is.
If you are still unsure whether your provider takes security seriously, or are wondering if this security flaw puts your website and obituaries at risk, contact us.
Security is a top priority for us, and we take it very seriously.
