stop before you swipe by i’m gonna tell
00:02
you about the top three things count of
00:04
one two three things that your web
00:06
developer is not telling you to do to
00:09
secure your website
00:10

00:13
i am ceo and creative director at

00:25
all right guys now before i jump into
00:27
the meat of this video make sure you do
00:29
the thing if you have the opportunity to
00:31
like and to subscribe on this particular
00:33
channel go ahead and smash that button
00:35
check that box and do the thing all
00:37
right so tip number one number one and
00:40
this is this is going to be a hard tip
00:42
for you guys so
00:44
i can’t tell you how many times that
00:46
i’ve logged onto websites and the
00:48
developer that originally built the
00:50
website still has access to the website
00:52
i’m talking about like one two three
00:54
four years later after the website is
00:56
built the developer has access to the
00:59
website that is a huge no-no i can’t
01:02
tell you how many times that i’ve gone
01:05
on development
01:06
communities environments and those could
01:08
be like platforms like fiverr uh and
01:11
similar where people are purchasing web
01:13
design products and they’re building it
01:16
using someone else’s platform they could
01:18
be building it on your platform and
01:21
and then selling it to someone else so
01:23
they’re literally not only are they
01:25
stealing from you but they’re also
01:26
potentially exposing your website so
01:29
let’s say you have an e-commerce site
01:31
and you’re selling products the
01:32
developers should not have access to
01:34
your website they have access to your
01:36
clients addresses their clients credit
01:38
cards and so much information so unless
01:40
you have an agreement with that
01:41
developer to maintain and manage that
01:43
site once the project is done
01:46
you should have them actually removed
01:49
from your site so that is a huge no no
01:52
and uh right behind that number two
01:56
number two the second tip i would say is
01:59
to make sure that you have a backup i
02:01
can’t tell you how many times that i’ve
02:03
seen sites that have been handed over
02:05
and then
02:06
once they get handed over the customer
02:08
is like uh
02:10
yeah i we need to contact the developer
02:13
again because we messed up the site
02:16
so the developer typically when we’re
02:18
building sites we we may do backups of
02:20
the sites but we’re under no obligation
02:22
to back up the site for you and if the
02:24
site gets damaged or destroyed then
02:26
that’s either going to be another fee or
02:28
you’re out of your investment so it’s
02:30
critically important to update your
02:33
website and yes your website again is
02:36
worth two hundred thousand dollars like
02:38
i talked to talk to you guys about in my
02:40
other videos
02:41
you’re just about to let your investment
02:44
just float away just because you didn’t
02:46
uh utilize a backup software or service
02:48
or team
02:50
backups can be free for some platforms
02:52
other platforms you may have to pay a
02:54
nominal fee it could be like 10 bucks 20
02:57
bucks a month
02:58
worth every penny of it especially when
03:01
you talk about
03:03
twenty dollars for the year versus
03:05
losing your investment worth two hundred
03:07
thousand dollars all right and number
03:10
three
03:11
number three is kind of like a weird one
03:13
so the the third thing that uh and this
03:16
depends on the on the platform too so i
03:18
have to add the third thing is adding
03:21
some sort of
03:22
defense or malware system you see this a
03:26
lot in the the builder platforms where
03:28
you have to build this like a drupal or
03:30
or wordpress platform those environments
03:33
you are responsible for putting malware
03:36
protection so just like your mac or your
03:38
pc or even your your cell phone your
03:40
android phone you you buy the the suite
03:43
of protection there are suites of
03:44
protection in addition to firewalls that
03:48
you can install on your website now yes
03:50
it’s gonna cost more money and these
03:52
services typically just like your
03:54
laptops are subscription services
03:56
but it’s gonna prevent you from getting
03:59
that phone call in the middle of the
04:00
night from a customer saying hey um yeah
04:03
i just went to your website and i’m
04:05
getting redirected to a gambling site or
04:08
a slot site or or even worse some other
04:10
crazy site that isn’t related to your
04:12
brand that could be a huge problem for
04:15
you in addition to that
04:17
depending on the type of intrusion to or
04:20
to your website
04:22
it can expose customer data customer
04:25
information and privacy is pretty huge
04:27
now even if you aren’t on one of those
04:29
diy building platforms even some of the
04:32
advanced systems uh that are maintained
04:35
like uh like a wix or shopify or square
04:37
they have two-factor authentication now
04:40
a lot of you guys are like oh two-factor
04:42
authentication
04:44
uh just it takes so many times i need my
04:46
my my google authenticator or my
04:48
facebook authenticator or my ubi key you
04:51
be key or one of those type things well
04:53
the thing is with that that protects
04:56
your account it protects because your
04:59
website is sitting on the internet 24
05:01
hours a day seven days a week it is
05:03
completely exposed and you may not have
05:06
the tools to
05:08
to see what’s going on but the hackers
05:10
do and so they have these programs that
05:12
are constantly just scanning the
05:14
internet looking for people that have
05:16
weak passwords or or usernames that are
05:19
common like using admin as a username
05:21
and once they hit that that’s jackpot
05:24
for them it’s gold they’re able to
05:25
access your system and depending on the
05:27
platform
05:28
if you if your account gets compromised
05:30
it can be a while to get it back um and
05:33
that happens on many different platforms
05:35
not even just the
05:36
the diy or the home hosted websites even
05:38
facebook facebook is it’s it’s a web app
05:42
it’s a website so
05:44
uh if your
05:45
uh
05:46
business is primarily using that website
05:48
to function and you don’t have access to
05:51
it and someone’s hacked it well then you
05:53
run into issue of losing customers we
05:55
all have been across that oh i got a new
05:58
friend request from you or your business
06:00
anyway um if you found that this
06:02
particular has video again don’t forget
06:03
