In the previous blog we’ve learned that time management is vital when it comes to Internet Marketing and that we should plan our tasks ahead of time in order to produce more valuable content. We also learned that owning your data and content is a must in order to be credited for the content we make and for reputation building. This time we will learn more about security and privacy in order to protect your data: • Mind your Website’s Code- Always check the contract if you hire a web developer. Some problems arise whenever a contract ends because web developers do not release codes for their clients. Make sure that in your contract you emphasize that for whatever purpose, you remain the owner of the website codes. Whatever they produce should be yours since you paid them for the work. If you own your code you’ll get: ✓ Security with Data Backups ✓ Full ownership to web codes ✓Data Privacy • Filter Content- Copy and paste is one of the dangers of releasing your content online. Basically anyone can just claim it and call it their own. We have all have access to almost all information on the internet but we should put in mind that we need to cite our own source. Always make sure you double check if your work is quoting from another. We don’t want to be accused of copyright infringement and plagiarism. Here are some tips to evaluate content on Web apart from placing the exact words on search engines: ✓ Check author’s proficiency on the topic ✓ The source of the content is stated ✓ The content can be independently verified from other sources ✓ Deep level of information meets your need ✓ The site is updated and maintained ✓ Links are relevant and appropriate, it should direct you to the source of information ✓ The site must have contact information To protect your content or even your web page you can: ✓ Disable Java Scripts ✓ Disable Copy and Paste ✓ Disable Context Menu ✓ Disable the CTRL or Command Key ✓ Disable Print ✓ Hide Sources • Be Password Protected- Having different passwords for every account makes it difficult for you to remember everything but this can be the safest way to protect your accounts. There some software that brags about their ability to secure passwords but you can’t always relay on them. Keep a personal record of all your login details and make sure that’s secure as well. You can never be too safe. Some Guidelines for Strong Passwords and keeping them private: ✓Make it longer! ✓ Mix upper and lower case letters ✓ Include at least a number or special characters, punctuations ✓ Avoid checking “Remember me” icons ✓ Remember that your account is your responsibility so never forget to log out and clear browser cache and cookies. ✓ Never share your password to anyone ✓ Do not base security questions and passwords to something personal ✓ Check Privacy settings on your computer, browser and accounts.
