With a Plan in Place, You Have No Need to Fear

The word vulnerable doesn’t have a good ring to it. There’s something about it that makes me feel a bit … uncomfortable, uneasy, and uncertain. That’s why I cringed a little when I saw the emails start coming into my inbox one morning that contained the words “Vulnerability Alert” associated with various websites that I’d had created. While it’s never a good thing to have a website that could be compromised, I was grateful that I had received the warning. 

After I had been warned about the vulnerability, I did some research. The company that I use to protect and secure my websites is iThemes Security Pro. They had discovered the vulnerability in a popular plugin and let the developers know about it. A patch or an update was soon in the works. In the meantime, iThemes Security Pro lets people like me about the vulnerability, what it was about and what could be done. I took action. I was quickly able to identify which client websites had the vulnerability, updated the plugins, and made sure that all was well. I felt at peace again. 

So how does this affect you and your website? 

If you are signed up for one of my paid maintenance and security plans, you have nothing to fear. I have you covered. Your website is safe and secure. I was able to update and address your website without you even knowing there was a vulnerability alert. You continued to run your business while I addressed your website, behind the scenes without you needing to do anything on your part. That makes me happy. I’m sure it makes you feel happy as well. 

What if you don’t have a maintenance and security plan? 

Simply put, your site may still be at risk. Maybe nothing will come of it. Then again, maybe your site is in the process of being attacked, hijacked, or susceptible to any number of security risks. If you’re tackling your maintenance and security on your own, you need to be vigilant in making sure you keep your plugins updated and addressing your security needs. I have a DIY option that teaches you how to do this … OR … you can sign up for one of my paid maintenance and security plans and put your mind at ease knowing I’ve got your back and your site is safe without you having to do anything on your part. 

Unfortunately, there are people out there that are up to no good and seek to harm your website. Keep your site (and thus your business) safe by having a maintenance and security plan in place.
