As marketing and design consultants, we work to keep our clients, and ourselves, safe from hackers and malicious software, primarily from website hackers. Given the nature of zero day attacks, websites may be vulnerable before there is a solution, but there are still ways to reduce the risk of these vulnerabilities.
As a marketing and design consultancy, we work very closely with our clients in their online marketing effort. We regularly need access to our clients’ accounts for their website hosting, domain name registration, and social media outlets. As such, we need our clients to safely share their account usernames and passwords with us. Emailing usernames and passwords is not safe and can lead to hacked accounts. Instead of emailing usernames and passwords, we recommend a tool called Password Pusher.

For LBDesign, a website must deliver real business value. Continue reading

As active members of the WordPress community and as podcasters ourselves (okay, only Liam so far), we like to keep our ears perked to what’s going on in the WordPress community.
