Website Maintenance And Advancements
Web Warning already has thousands of pages and this number is going up every day, every hour, even while you are reading this. The website has a sophisticated search function, along with fine-tuned placement capabilities. We also have a dedicated server. And, due to our nature of business, we are target of hackers who want to sabotage the site so we need to have enhanced online security as well. We regularly back up, monitor and manage our server. With advancement of technology, we also need to upgrade the existing technology. We also have plans for multiple newer features but all of those need more technical resources which aren't cheap.
General Office Equipment & Employees
After these technical resources, we also require a lot of equipments and employees to run the website. From basic office supplies to costlier devices like computers, recorders and cameras, management professionals to ensure a smooth operational office and the account department to ensure that every cent is accounted for, everything costs money. We manually go through every report to ensure that our visitors are safe from frauds, scam and identity theft and to remove the obscenity from every report which some people insert, out of frustration mostly. We receive a hell lot of reports so we need a lot of people as well to check those reports, send out communication to people who have not submitted the report properly or have filed some questionable reports. It goes without saying that we need to maintain our superb team of customer support as well and pay for that team. After all, we need people who can help our members and visitors in cases like a forgotten password or need assistance in uploading proofs. All of this ensures that that consumers and customers have a place to voice their concerns.
Legal Expenses For In-House And Outside
Our legal expenses are unthinkably high as well. As we don't remove reports just because some bully wants us to remove it and as we don't share the information of any report’s author just because someone needs it, we receive a lot of communications from people who want to know an author’s contact information or ask us to remove a particular report or threat us of suing us for a report someone else has written on our website. We also need to deal with several aspects of intellectual property claims. All of these notices and communications arrive in our legal department and we need to maintain a battery of lawyers in-house and sometimes need to consult outside counsels as well. As you know, the costs of maintaining these in-house lawyers and our outside legal counsels who handle every litigation we face can be very high.
Cost Of Offering Services To Individuals And Businesses
As we grow more, increasing number of customers and businesses approach us with different issues they are facing and we need to find and implement different solutions to resolve those problems. We have some great minds working for Web Warning and they work together to provide valuable solutions to businesses and individuals. However, we need to pay to those great minds and also pay for the resources they need.
Cost Of Informing Our Followers Of The Latest Scams & Frauds In The News
We know that nobody has the time to sit and watch the news, around the clock, around the country. This is why Web Warning’s social media channel brings the consolidated information to you. Our Facebook page and Twitter handle are regularly updated with many of the latest frauds, scams and shady offers. We also inject the much needed good vibes in these channels which we all need from time to time.
Costs Of Combating Cyber Harassment And Cyber Stalking
As we grow, many people approach us and post reports which are more of a revenge or are different forms of cyber harassment, cyber stalking or cyber bullying. As per our available resources, we assign specific staff members to review these reports, as per our current policies. When needed, we also need to do follow up communications with the author and perform different administrative tasks. As we are now more aware of these malicious efforts, we are taking proactive steps to counter these reports. This requires personal attention and requires a very high number of manpower resources. The more resource we can allocate to this, these serious and time consuming matters can be addressed more swiftly.
