Hi Lyceum. I find that this system works for most business owners. The password management tools I have an issue with since companies own them and a company get's bought out or closes. Even worse someone hacks them! I know many experts that push these tools, but most of them work in security industry selling the tools themselves. Also not everything you need a password for needs to be secure. If you are putting a password in for FREE stuff, it doesn't need to be secure. Password generator tools randomly select characters which are usually hard to remember. Using the system that I have written about, you can get the same level of security as the generator tool, but easier to remember. Keep secure and "
Yes. Hackers are using better software. Over 30,000 websites are hacked a day. Weak password actually makes up a small percentage of hacked sites. It's still very important. Poor websites hosting, outdated server software makes up the largest issue followed by outdated website software. Like not updating WordPress or Plugins. I worked as a systems administrator for an Ivy League University for 10 years and have seen a massive increase in attacks mostly coming from Eastern Europe. On the other side of things there are great tools out there for protecting our businesses. "
No Problem Ebele. That is just about creating a secure password. I will be revising my password management system to help people manage large amount of passwords. There is an older post in the security section on my website that gives the basics. Glad you enjoyed the post. "
Thanks. Google has a lot of great Advanced Search features. These really help us find what we need for our businesses. My previous article on Google Search highlighted operators. I will be writing more articles on Google's advance search features. "
Thanks Val. I find many people try to rush their websites and in doing so create more problems down the road. I love that BizSugar is a great place to find articles from other business owners. Have found a lot of interesting websites and information from BizSugar. -Terry"
It is important to monitor this, however, more important how one reacts to negative comments. Not all should be removed. Most of the time people are looking to see how someone handles the negative feedback. All comments are better if someone is able to reply to them. Even if negative, replying with your heart may help get more clients or customers. "
Heather, Thanks for the Comment. I think all business owners should have a website. They should also know a website is there best marketing engine. Websites like BizSugar are great ways for business owners to get self-educated. Thanks."
Emily, Thanks for your comment. I give my clients who have a website a worksheet with all the information they should have. For both old and new clients I set them up with a spreadsheet for there logins. I have a post on my site called 'Organize logins' - it's linked on this post. It really helps the business owner. Keep up the good work and spread the word! -Terry"
