Almost ten years ago Data Privacy Day was created in the US and Canada in an effort to bring more awareness to staying safe online.
January 28th is a day, set aside, to help boost a more secure and safer internet for all users.
Being mindful of how you protect yourself online is imperative. When relying on the Internet for your business you can not place data and privacy protection to the side.
How can you be aware and protect yourself? There are several ways you can be safe online. Here are a few suggestions.
Ways to Stay Safe Online:
Think before you act: Before you just click on links, think. Not all websites are safe. Hackers are ready to reach you through the Internet. They can steal your life and make you vulnerable. Securing your site in the aftermath of hackers is no easy task. Here at WP Security Lock we try to make that easier for you.
Protect your passwords: we always recommend using LassPass. This is an easy way to protect your passwords. It is never a good idea to use the same password for everything. Nor is it easy to remember them all. This is how we secure our passwords and private information.
Safely shop online: When you are on the Internet you really have to be aware. One example, before you checkout on any site make sure it has https access. Hackers are ready for your personal & banking information. If you run a business we can help you set that up. Your customers will appreciate it.
Awareness of your WI-FI connection: Never browse the internet via an unsecure Internet connection. This is really asking for trouble. If you must connect in this way do so with a VPN. This is a big help while traveling and running your website online.
Keep WordPress up-to-date: We run into many situations where individuals & companies do not keep up with their website. Keeping your site secure involves making sure WordPress is managed in a secure way. We are the experts and can do that for you.
It is important to know that you can do everything right and still be hacked. Your information and website can still be compromised. Getting security protocols in place will definitely help and help make the global Internet community a safer place to be.
