You pay for car insurance and health insurance just in case something goes wrong … what do you have in place to protect your website?
Your website is the hub of your digital business, and it’s vulnerable 24/7 to hackers, poor management, and simple bad luck. Fortunately, regular maintenance and a great website host can protect your website from the worst of it, and a handy backup of your files will save the day if everything else fails.
This podcast episode covers Maintenance, the last of our 7 digital business systems – last but not least. Without regular security updates, your website could disappear in an instant, putting you out of business until you can put things back in order.
