Discover How Cyber Security Can Protect Your Network during COVID-19

The Importance of Cyber Security

Cyber security has become one of the most critical aspects of data security. Data security is especially relevant today because this school year has gotten off to a strange start. From having to make changes to classrooms regarding COVID-19, and most classes starting out virtually. What if I told you there’s still more that could go wrong…well now that sounds terrifying.

Schools are currently being targeted and hit by ransomware. Cyber security has become a very important aspect of technology in today’s world.The last thing that a school district needs is to be worried about the staff and student’s data security. This is happening because school districts are exposed and do not have time to focus on cyber security plans. After all, they are currently concentrating on many other things to protect their students and return to the classroom safely.

Are Random Password Generators Safe?

Many people look to random password generators to produce a password that will be hard to guess. The idea of a generator is to generate a password that is not easy to guess. A lot of people tend to use personal information that is easy to obtain via social media. An important concept to grasp from this is not to use any publicly known information as a password. However, the question remains, are random password generators safe? The answer is yes, and no. Let’s clarify why it can go either way.

A random password generator is secure to use because it does not include any private information as a password. A lot of people tend to post a lot of information on social media; examples include pet names, nicknames, parent’s names, and so forth. Not to say that you shouldn’t post any information you want, just don’t incorporate that information into your password. Hackers use social engineering to crack passwords, so by adding personal data, the door is left wide open to compromise your accounts.

Now let’s explore how a random password generator can be unsafe. While generating a password online, there is no clear cut way to distinguish if your password stays on that website. Yikes, not another compromised case for your business to stress over. However, having good cybersecurity policies and an IT company with strict password policies can help prevent that from happening. When utilizing a random generator, it’s essential to keep the passwords longer than twelve characters and change your password every six months. By implementing these policies, your accounts will be secure due to not using your dog’s name as your password.

CoreRecon has specialists who are accustomed to how passwords can be compromised. We have tools that help discover whether you have had your password compromised. We are here to keep your data and your business protected. Trust CoreRecon to ensure your business is not the next headline because company data was compromised.

What is an SEO Assessment and Why You’d Want One

an SEO audit will tell you what’s working on your website, what’s not and how you can improve it to rank better and thus, generate more leads.

 

If your competition is outranking you, either:

They have something going on that you DON’T

OR

you have some sort of Google Penalty ( the rough equivalent to “Google Demerits” ) assigned against you ( and they don’t)

With an SEO audit, you pay a company to forensically examine your site and apply its expertise to identify problems and offer solutions.

 

That doesn’t mean, “fix it”, it means “find out what needs to be fixed”

 

So how DOES Google determine which site should be listed at the top and what hierarchy the sites deemed to be less important should be displayed in it’s search engine?

The first thing we need to realize is “it’s Google’s DoJo“, Google is not a public utility, it’s a “for profit” company. Google does, however, have the best interests of it’s users at heart, because by doing so, it’s share holders benefit.

From Google’s perspective… not so long ago, we used to “submit” our websites to Google, now Google can find your website with or without you taking any action, that’s accomplished via Internet Bots

Some “Bots” are designed to be “malicious”, Googlebot is the internet (ro)bot that scours the web to index website it finds… it then passes what it finds off to a “scoring algorithm”, an algorithm is a computer program that measures what it finds against a predetermined criteria that Google assigned.

IN ESSENCE the goal of your website is NOT to be conjure up  emotions in a human, for the purpose of evoking a response ( such as they’re prompted to ORDER NOW)… the goal of your website is to be DEEMED AUTHORITATIVE in Google’s eyes

Business owners come to us to improve their ranking in Google, in order to do that, we have to find out what is wrong.

List of what you get from an SEO Assessment:

  1. A description of the current state of the web site – A detailed analysis on how the web site is performing in search, social media, number of internal/external links and any other information related to the web site’s existing state.
  2. A list of recommended actions to take in order to improve how the site performs, together with explanations for every item in the list.
  3. A report describing a complete Digital marketing strategy for taking advantage of all available sources of traffic and opportunities on the Internet, Social Media, Smartphones, Tablets and not just SEO.

Web designers mistakenly believe the intended audience is a human, it is not, eventually it is but not until AFTER Google views your domain as The Authority in your genre. After that happens, then you worry about human user experience.

Fee for small business local SEO Assessment: $400
