episode #505 AUGUST 2, 2020

GUEST: Lorraine Ball | Roundpeg and Digital Toolbox

Are you protecting your website with an SSL?  You should be. 

the episode

Today I want to talk about security. I’m sure that every day when you leave your home, you lock the door and you take your keys. That’s what you do to protect your home. 

As a business owner with a website, you need to lock your website to protect that as well. And how do you lock your website? Well, the first step is to add what’s known as an SSL, a secure socket layer to make sure that your information does not fall into the wrong hands and to signal to search engines that you’re serious about security.

Because you see, Google and other search engines don’t want to send visitors to websites that could be potentially dangerous, that could potentially distribute their information into the wrong hands. If you don’t have an SSL on your web sight you need to get in touch with your web developer today.

 

KEY TAKEAWAY: Security is an important piece of your website.
