What do website owners have in common with presidential candidates?  They’ve got to worry about hackers and website security.  Last summer the websites of both candidates came under attack.

What can you do to keep your website safe?

  1. If you use any third party software on your website be sure to keep it updated.  These updates usually include the latest security fixes.
  2. Make sure your password is adequate.  It should contain letters as well was numbers.  If the system will allow it things like an ampersand or a dollar sign are great additions.
  3. Have your website developer make sure that your email forms are safe.  Putting in an email form is very easy.  It takes more time to make sure that its safe but it’s well worth the time.
  4. Make backups of your site and your database just in case the worst happens.
