The 4 Areas of Web Security Businesses Must Know


Your web 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. )

– 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 the website pages 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, keep it updated  

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

3. Web Security

– there are good & bad options suited for different users

– firewalls matter and most all free solutions have no firewall

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


4. Secure Socket Layers ( SSL )WHY DOES GOOGLE WANT US TO USE SSL?

– Google has stated SSL is necessary

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

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

– it may seem obvious for e- commerce, but exposure stems from the fact that people also fill out contact forms and owners login to their websites from a browser!
