Update your Website's Copyright Date, Among Other Things

It’s a new year and most of us have a new set of goals. One business goal you should consider this year is giving your website an update. At the very least, make sure the copyright year is updated to 2020 on your homepage (usually in the footer).

As important as it is for your website’s content and graphics to be refreshed, it’s equally as important you keep up with the security upgrades to your servers and backend tools on programs such as WordPress. Not all content management systems have automatic updates, and your site can get infected without you knowing if you don’t keep up with security updates. Unfortunately, there is no perfect software protection and those open source programs such as WordPress are often the primary target of hackers.

When a hacker searches and finds vulnerability in old WordPress installs, they can hack the site and “inject” malicious code in the SQL Database used for WordPress. The hackers’ goal is to steal important data, so most commonly seen cyber-attacks involve the hacker redirecting links on your site to links on the hacker’s fake site. It’s hard for a business to know they’ve been cyber-attacked unless they have a trusted web hosting company or developer who will scan their data and maintain their latest WordPress security upgrades.

PSP offers a WordPress option of Dreamersi.com, our popular website building tool. With our program, every three months the latest security version of WordPress is installed, and all the major plugins are automatically updated. Even then, we advise customers to login to their content management systems and check for any security updates.

Start fresh in the New Year. Make sure you’ve updated your website’s copyright year, update outdated content and banners, as well as login and make sure you don’t have any strange activity going on without your knowledge! If you have no idea where to start, you can always contact us at PSP for help.
