As this article from Bloomberg Business Week explains, security breaches can affect not only your website, but your customers as well. Here are a few basic tips for ensuring that your website won’t be hacked.
Use a Strong Password
Your password needs to be something that hackers won’t be able to figure out easily. You don’t want to use the same password for each site, and you don’t want to use things like the name of your child or your spouse. Choose a password that you’ll be able to remember, and make sure it includes at least one upper case letter and one number.
Keep your Security Software Updated
By downloading the newest versions of your antivirus software and Windows updates, you make it even harder for hackers to break into your site. Being vigilant about updating is the best way to deter hackers since each update makes it a little harder for them to crack the code.
Be Careful What You Link
Before you link to another site, make sure you know that site is reputable. Linking to a bad site within your site is the quickest way to destroy your reputation online.11 months ago • 0 notes
