If you’ve gone from a PC/low-res laptop to a Mac in the past few years, you probably noticed something about the screen display. Dubbed “Retina” display by Mac, text appears more crisp, blacks and whites are more clear and saturated, colors are richer and more vibrant.

Welcome to the fourth article in our Making Security Makes Sense to Clients series.
In my previous posts I discussed the importance of securing your own site, your client sites, and how educating your clients about website security can foster trust and growth in your freelance or agency business.
After you’ve communicated the Why, Who, How and When of website hacks, it’s time to either start building security into your project proposals and costs or to continue educating your clients. Or both really 🙂
In this post, I’m going to share five website security best practices that are easy to implement. Whether you include these steps as part of your service, or your website security education plan, your clients will benefit. What’s even better, they’re easy to implement! So let’s get to it, shall we?
Facebook has recently dominated cybersecurity headlines following the revelation that a third party analytics firm collected data on over 50 million unknowing users. Many Facebook app users were shocked to learn the social network recorded their personal calls and text messages, not realizing they had inadvertently given the company permission to do so.
The Gutenberg WordPress Editor will very soon be part of WordPress core. This new editor promises a completely different content creation experience in WordPress, and is arguably one of the biggest changes of functionality in WordPress history. And no single core feature has ever inspired such heated debate amongst WordPress users and developers.
Last weekend I had the opportunity to check out the Drupal community in San Diego, during the 10th annual SANDCamp. SiteLock protects many Drupal sites in addition to WordPress sites, so it was a joy to meet everyone in the community and learn more about the current state of Drupal.
On March 28, 2018 Drupal released a highly critical security update affecting Drupal sites using version 7.x and 8.x. This security update addresses a critical vulnerability impacting approximately 1 million websites that could allow attackers to exploit multiple access points and take control of Drupal sites. In order to address the issue, Drupal has released two new versions and is recommending that all Drupal sites be updated as soon as possible.
Would you do business with a company you don’t trust? Believe the words or intentions of someone who seems deceptive? How about confide in someone you don’t know very well?
The obvious answer is no. Trust is one of the most important factors in any relationship, whether it be personal or professional. Despite this, only 22 percent of brands are trusted.
As a website owner, it is critical your visitors trust your website—otherwise they’ll leave and may not return. After all, it only takes users 50 milliseconds to form a first impression of a website, a very short window to prove credibility.
Welcome to the third article in our Making Security Makes Sense to Clients series.
In my first post I discussed the importance of security for your business and your own websites and in my second post, I showed you the benefits of securing your client sites, before handing them over.
In this post, I’m going to share why security education is important and how to educate your clients about security in terms they’ll easily understand as it applies to their businesses.
Educating your clients (and potential clients) about website security isn’t just the right thing for your business, it’s the right thing to do period. Let’s talk about why that is, who’s ultimately responsible for website security, and how a dedicated focus on security can help set you apart from the crowd while increasing your value and revenue.
In our series on managing WordPress updates, we’ve discussed how crappy it is when your website breaks, and examined lots of solutions to avoid it ever happening. One of the things we strongly recommend is having a good backup process in place.
Welcome to the second article in our Making Security Makes Sense to Clients series.
In our first post, I talked about the importance of securing your own site first, and what can happen if you don’t. If you’ll recall, a website hack ruined my first internet business and I want to make sure you’re doing all you can to mitigate the risks to your own website, and those of your clients.
Let’s assume your own site is secured. Great. Now, what about your client sites? Are you actively implementing basic security best practices on the sites you hand over? This post will talk about why securing your clients’ websites is important to your immediate and long-term business.
