In the current technological age, a website is now the face of an organization. When people hear about a new business or organization, the first thing they’ll do is check out their website. While having a secure, well-functioning website for your organization can help raise the reputation of your brand, having one that is not secure and puts visitor’s information at risk can have the opposite effect. A recent article provides some preventative measures you can take to keep your website and online reputation secure.
- Have a protocol in place for your organization outlining what to do in the case of a security breach. The better prepared you and your employees are, the quicker you will be able to stop or contain a cyberattack.
- Be sure you have access to a long history of logs and be sure you are checking in on your website daily for spam activity, security plugins and updates. If an update is available, be sure to go forward with it since outdated software is prime real estate for hackers.
- Do frequent backups, at least once a month, on everything! Creating backups takes away any opportunity for a ransomware attack.
