The best line of defense on the web starts with user awareness. Avoid the risk of web security attacks

1. Use Strong Passwords

It used to be that 3 or 4 character passwords would keep your information safe. However, as technology has advanced, so have the abilities and ways to crack passwords.

Now, your passwords need at least 8 characters with a mixture of lower case letters, capitals, numbers, and a special character like an exclamation mark is highly recommended.

Don't make your password a familiar phrase. It might be easy for you to remember the phrase "I love my children" but a ?password?cracking software will break that in no time. A great idea is to take the first letter of a phrase you will remember and use those, like this:

"I love my children, John, Mary, and Phil" would be "ILm3c-JM&P".
Never use a password twice. If someone hacks into any of your accounts then could access your bank accounts, your online purchase accounts, and any other?important information.

2. Two-Factor Authorization.

A two-factor authorization comes in handy when a website recognizes a different IP address is used to login to a website like your Google account. You are immediately sent a text message with a phone number you registered with to confirm if it is you. If you didn't log in, you should immediately change the password to secure your account.

As technology changes, it becomes increasingly challenging for businesses of all types to keep their personal and customer's information on the web secure.

Web security is important to keeping hackers and cyber-thieves from accessing sensitive information. Without a proactive security strategy, businesses risk the spread and escalation of malware, attacks on other websites, networks, and other IT infrastructures. If a hacker is successful, attacks can spread from computer to computer, making it difficult to find the origin.

3. Always Use Secure Networks

When logging into financial and other crucial websites, look at the address bar before logging into your bank website and other sites on which you have personal information. If the address starts with HTTPS then you know it is secured (by the added "s"). If it doesn't, then you either have the wrong login page or it is possibly a spoof (fake) website.

Never click on a link in an email that seems suspicious. Better yet, never click on a link that comes from any crucial website such as your bank. Simply go to the website link you trust and have saved in your bookmarks to?login, or call them. They will understand your caution

4. Use More Than One Email Address

The email you use for your personal banking might be more secure if you use a different email for things like Facebook, Twitter, and even?EBay. If someone were to hack into one then they would not automatically have access to the others.

5. Be Cautious About Posting Your Email Address Online

This is simply an invitation for spam if nothing else, but it also opens up a message of "Hey, hack me. Here's my email." Avoid posting your email address on forums, review sites, and message boards where spammers can easily pick up your address.

Unable to access wordpress dashboard on my hp-pc notebook windows 7

WordPress is a free, open source blogging platform. You can install WordPress on your own Web server or you can sign up for a free WordPress blog through the WordPress.com website. The Dashboard is used to access and manage the administration of the blog. From the Dashboard, you can create new posts, edit existing posts, change the blog's theme and add widgets. You can rearrange the Dashboard, and add additional Dashboard modules and widgets to suit your particular needs.

Open any Web browser. Type "www.your_site.com/wp-admin" or in the brower address bar, if you installed Wordpress in the site's root directory. Type "www.your_site.com/blog/wp-admin" if you installed Wordpress in a subdirectory. Replace "www.your_site.com" with the URL for your website. Replace "blog" with the subdirectory name. Type your username and password in the appropriate text boxes, and click the "Log In" button. Click on the "Dashboard" link on the left side of the screen, if you are not automatically directed to the Dashboard. b> WordPress.com Open any Web browser. Type "www.your_blog.wordpress.com/wp-admin" in the browser address bar. Replace "your_blog" with the name of your Wordpress blog. Type your username and password in the appropriate text boxes, and click the "Log In" button. You will be directed to the Dashboard automatically.
