Website Security Tips for Business Owners and Executives

Cyber threats are increasing each year. However, there are little to no regulations for websites, web hosts and web developers. So, it falls on business executives to make sure their websites (and the data therein) are secure. This is challenging for many executives because web technology is complicated with lots of terminology. So, this webinar uses layman’s terms and real world examples to help business owners and executives understand website security.

Key Takeaways:

  1. Learn why taking backups and doing basic updates isn't "security"
  2. Understand the different kinds of risks your website may be exposed to
  3. Turn confusing web terminology into simple questions to ask your web host/agency
  4. Understand what YOU are responsible for versus your web agency/host
