2 Top Tips to Help Keep Your Website Secure

Top Tip Number 1

Tip one is to enforce a rigid password policy that insists on complex passwords. Using a minimum of 8 characters, using upper and lower case as well as numbers will all add to the complexity of your password and ultimately how secure it is. This may sound simple but it is amazing how reluctant many users are to create passwords that meet this criteria. It is just easier to think of a simple password but this leaves your password vulnerable.

Top Tip Number 2

Use website security software such as Wordfence. This type of software enables the website manager to monitor who is trying to access the site. If known hackers try to access the site they are automatically blocked. The database of potential harmful users is constantly updated, so that if a user tries to hack another site they will automatically be blocked from accessing your site. There are many other features to this type of software but basically it is an advanced way of staying ahead of the hackers and keeping your site as secure as is possible. Of course no site is ever completely free of vulnerability but the important thing is to keep moving forward with the latest tools available to keep your site secure.
