Website Security: Best Practices & Tips for Businesses

Website security is a proactive project and should be monitored on a monthly basis. No matter the size of your business, the security of your site, data, and customers’ information is crucial.

Website security starts before the first line of code is written and continues through the life of the business. From choosing the right platform to building out a proper team for the size of your website, having the proper knowledge to make decisions is important for any CEO.

Join us this week for a chat with Rich Rudzinski, the CEO of Tragic Media. Tragic media is a development agency based out of San Diego. Rich has been infatuated with computers from the time he first locked eyes on the sweet 486 Windows machine his uncle got his family in the early 90s. He broke, fixed, and gamed on that computer until he saved enough to build his own machine from scratch.

Rich and his team build secure sites, apps, and anything digital for his clients. Clients Rich has worked with include Under Armour, Pixar, WD-40, GM, Iron Man, Intel, The Baltimore Ravens, The Atlanta Falcons, Lego, Burger King, and Qualcomm to name a few.

The first section of the podcast discusses steps for businesses looking to launch a site. We talk steps and best practices for those looking to hire a development agency to support their security checks.

Section 2 is all about website maintenance. From plug-ins to data storage, we discuss ways that businesses of all sized can easily implement safe and secure practices. We talk SSL and Rich mentioned a great one click tool for SSL implementation called CloudFlare.

Section 3 focuses on hackers. Why the hack and the ways they like to get into a site and take over. Spoiler: hackers don’t always want to take over the site! Sometimes they are looking to leverage your server power!

The final section covers general tips for small businesses and consumers. We talk about data protection for businesses and what consumers can do. We cover what consumers can look out for when dealing with sensitive data on financial apps like Mint, Turbo by Intuit, Wally, Acorns, and more!
