Overcome Your Website Securities Worries

Make no mistake, if you own a website, however small or low-trafficked it is, you are a crucial piece to the overall internet ecosystem. How would it make you feel if your friend’s bank account was wiped out after they visited your site? Or if a self-replicating virus destroyed your visitor’s hard-drive after submitting a form on your marketing site? Again, that’s how critical you are to this environment and that’s how dangerous things could get if you’re not educated.

This talk is designed to break down website security at its most fundamental level and understand that there is no 100% solution out there, there never will be. Security is about technology, processes, and people, and we need to know how to mitigate risk in these areas.

Meet Adam Lamagna, Sales Consultant at Sucuri – top global website security firm.Adam Lamagna Headshot

Adam will discuss best practices for website security, let you know of your responsibility as a website owner, and hopefully make it less frustrating. We all know it can be difficult to understand the vast landscape that is website security, so this talk will cover:

  • Dispelling the myth of “why would anyone hack me?”
  • Understanding what a Firewall actually protects
  • Hosting and how it plays a role in website security
  • Different types of online threats (what is malware, DDoS, Brute Force?)
  • Essentials of website security (Passwords, updates, user roles, backups, etc.)
  • DIY tools to help mitigate risk and improve your online security posture
  • Resources for staying informed and being responsible

If you own or manage a website, whether it’s an ecommerce store, a blog, or just a simple marketing site, you need to know how to keep it protected and become a responsible steward of the world wide web!

    It was an excellent meeting with the Travel Bloggers last night. The three of them have completely different background and start as bloggers. Great insights, tips and information shared that can be applied to any online start-up. Thank you!
