7 Tips to Keep Your Website Secure
Yikes. We’ve seen some hefty data breaches and site hacks in our years. Is anyone really safe?
The digital world is always changing and developers and marketers have to stay on their toes when it comes to making secure app and website choices. Here are the latest things you can do to make sure your websites are secure.
- Install SSL – A Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificate encrypts information passing between your website and your visitors. Some browsers deter users from sites without SSL. You can get an SSL from your CMS, a third-party vendor, or even install one yourself.
- Use anti-malware software – There are a lot of options out there that can scan and prevent malicious attacks.
- Make your passwords uncrackable – But you don’t just need one good password, you need solid and different passwords across your accounts.
- Keep your website up to date – Even if you had a solid security stack on launch…it might be out of date in a year (or sooner). Keep an eye on your core updates, plug-ins, and licenses. Not all of these are going to have obvious alarms when they go out of date so you may have to set yourself reminders.
- Watch out for hackers elsewhere – Email is still the number one method for malware to be delivered. You have to be wary of email scams, unsecured internet, and any access you give others to your accounts.
- Manually accept on-site comments – Bots, fake accounts, and trolls are ready and waiting with unsavory links. If you create a moderation process, you won’t have to worry about your site’s users.
- Run regular backups – Just like keeping up to date on all things in your tech stack, you also have to keep a copy of your site. After all, website mistakes and breaches are often because of human error.
