  62. I do nightly database back ups then weekly full site #socialcafe
  63. Good plan! RT @mettaworldwar: #TBW I have any VITAL stuff backed up from my laptop onto a hard drive AND onto cloud #socialcafe
  64. A2. After a HORRID attack we found a super security platform to help monitor and do clean up... then we worked on patching #SocialCafe #TBW
  65. That way if I something happens I only lost a dayish #socialcafe
  66. A2. A security game plan is something that is always evolving because technology and hackers are always evolving #SocialCafe #TBW
  67. A2. A security game plan is something that is always evolving because technology and hackers are always evolving #SocialCafe #TBW
  68. One thing if you are using anytype of platform (I think most are wp) make sure your site software is up todate #socialcafe
  69. A2: research, log all suspicious activity, and of course, stay updated with current happenings #TBW #socialcafe
  70. @YourLifeAfter25 definitely. You have to keep yourself and your game plan updated always. Pay attention to what's new #socialcafe
  71. @KatieSpurgin reminded me... When I was CTO in financial industry, I had 3-prong contingency plans so would never go down #SocialCafe #TBW
  72. A2. We do daily, weekly, and a monthly backup in 3 different places. That way there is always a backup plan :) #SocialCafe #TBW

  74. @PinkMama68 @socialwebcafe @TheBlogWorkshop hey Pam! I still haven’t gotten to my first post! Classes are killing me! #SocialCafe
  75. I back up to one place then also download it from there in an external drive #socialcafe
  76. Girl, you are a pro! RT @tamarawilson: I back up to one place then also download it from there in an external drive #socialcafe #tbw
  77. @socialwebcafe @tamarawilson probably more than I realize I'm guessing. I just don't think of them as security related #SocialCafe #TBW
  78. Experience, eh :) RT @tamarawilson: thank you :) comes with age I guess RT @socialwebcafe Girl, you are a pro! #socialcafe #tbw
  79. A3: make passwords even more difficult to crack. Also I have heard of there being ways to limit the # of login attempts. #SocialCafe
  80. #TBW A2 v important to keep up w tech developments-exploits discovered constantly on ALL platforms & hosts arent 100% up to date #socialcafe
  81. If someone changes his or her password frequently, is there any side effet? Like more exposure to hackers. #socialcafe
