This week was International Data Privacy Day which serves as an important reminder for businesses to make sure their own personal data and that of their consumers is protected.
We thought we would take the opportunity to remind businesses the measures we put inot place to protect privacy of user information, and what you as businesses should be enquring is in place on your websites.
4 Website Data Privacy Measures
1. Website is secured by SSL
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) has become extremely important to have on your website as it does a number of things. SSL is an encrypted layer that will protect data passed between the webserver and the users web browser. An additional benefit is that Google will reward sites that have this security measure in place therefore is essential to avoid being penalised in the Google Algorithm against your competitors in search results. Read more about these and how we can establish the right certificate for your website.
4. Have a secure website admin and hacking protection
At HyperWeb we value having secure website admin and hacking protection systems in place that ensure our WordPress sites are secure and are at minimal risk. Some common practices include; creating a unique admin URL, ongoing scanning, plugin updates, SSL installation (as previously mentioned) and regular backups. We discussed some other measures in a previous blog article.
