Rich’s Web Design – March Newsletter
Google / Chrome & SSL
As of March 1st, about 73% of RWD clients’ web sites are now ‘https://www…’. Especially with the Chrome browser, Google really wants all serious sites to be secure / https w/ S.S.L. certification. Have you seen this warning yet on other sites?
Some hosting providers are making this a very easy to change, some are more challenging. I will make these installations on a ‘first-come-first-serve’ basis, so let me know if you wish me to fix your site!
It seems like each month, I talk about security for your web site, for your computer use, for your banking, etc. Did you know that February was Cyber Security Month? Remember me talking about ‘Two-Step Authorization’? Remember me talking about Proactive WordPress Security Maintenance?
When was the last time you changed ALL of your passwords? Are your passwords set to … ‘[pet-name]’, or [mothers-birthdate], or [your-name-123]? They should be something like [hfC*NN2bv@DGA8], or [GV92!@qo5CJ&YEV]. Random and at least 10 characters.
Some of the best Password Managing Tools are Dashlane, Sticky Password and RoboForm. Each are powerful, easy to use and affordable.
What experience(s) have you had with online security? Has anyone signed up for LifeLock? Is it worth the investment? RSVP with your story!
was an awesome event, back on Feb 18th!
TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design – three broad subject areas that are, collectively, shaping our future. TED is a platform for ideas worth spreading. Started in 1984 as a conference where technology, entertainment and design converged, TED today shares ideas from a broad spectrum – from science to business to global issues – in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independent TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.
