 The 4 Areas of Web Security Businesses Must Know

 

Your security is about risk reduction because the risk will never ever be zero. There is no perfect security solution or guarantee because hacks will come up with new methods every day. So, serious people need to get familiar with the 4 areas of security that matter to their web health. 

 

1. Local Computers & Communication

– the biggest area of vulnerability and where most hacks occur

– at minimum use malware scanning software ( i.e. malwarebytes.com )

– be reluctant to click on links or react to anything in email unless you are certain of who it came from

– search random website domains on Google before visiting because Google vets websites it indexes for malware downloading and nefarious activity


2. Website Updates Management

– manage a business website as if it is under attack because it is! 

– good website software advances and unless someone else owns your website, update it  

– with WordPress there are core updates, theme & application updates that either advance usability or harden code against vulnerability to hack

3. Website Security

– there are good & bad options suited for different users

– firewalls matter, most free solutions have no firewall

– inconvenient as it may be, you must encrypt login page URLs , usernames and passwords

 

4. Secure Socket Layers ( SSL )

– Google has stated SSL is necessary

– now they make it visible in the browser, you are either an ‘I’ or ‘Green Lock’ website

– it protects the exchange of information between browser and website from 3rd party computers who might otherwise get in between

– it may seem obvious for e- commerce, but people fill out contact forms and owners login to all websites from a browser!
