Speaking from experience in the IT world (as in programmer and CTO, as well as system administrator responsible for security for the firm), you can never be too careful when it comes to security. It is good to see that we are taking steps to do the best we can for our blogs/sites.
While most hosts do pretty well, it doesn’t hurt to keep an eye on the security measures and ensure that they (the host) is on top of it and know what they are doing. Too many horror stories about hosts that were supposed to know what they were doing and botched someone’s site with the “Oh well” response. But, hey, that is why we are having this topic series on #SocialCafe. :)
Can’t say enough about those backups! And, timely, successful backups (not just one from 10 years ago... lol).
Yes, good point, Marisa. There are security plugins that limit the number of logins and that is a good plugin to have on your site.
And, Clay - good one! Common sense (and educate yourself in the area of security; ask experts.
Ah, Clay, don’t be too hard on yourself. That is why we are here discussing it, to help each other out on this, eh? And, good for you Christin, doing some research. That is a great idea for all of us. :)
And, I agree with Pam - great that many of us haven’t had anything bad happen yet, so we have time to prepare ;) And, to agree with Da Vinci, that is what this series is all about, so we look forward to seeing you at the next #SocialCafe ;)

We started a new series on blog security, data backups, and keeping safe with your web site or blog.
During this series, we examined different plugins and software, coming up with a plan that works well for each of us and our special circumstances.
