Following these 5 simple tips you can make your website more secure from the “internet vandals”:
1. Stay tuned. You need to keep up with all hacking threats, so that to be able to put necessary updates in time.
2. Make your website access control tougher and change your passwords regularly. Use strong passwords to your server and website admin area, and enforce your users to do so for their areas too. Keep in mind that one weak password can really undermine your business reputation, so nothing like 123456 is acceptable. Additionally, add 2-factor authentication.
3. Use SSL/HTTPS. With SSL/HTTPS your client’s sensitive data will be more secure from “domain slamming”, “email phishing” attacks and other harmful activities.
4. Backup your website. Make backups regularly, as well as, on a schedule, as in case your website is compromised, this will help you restore your website.
5. Consider having the best possible website monitoring service you can afford.
