You know you want a web developer, but you don’t know what to ask them. Here’s a list of useful questions you might need to ask:
#9 What do you do for security?
We know you’re not as interesting as CIA would be for hackers, but your website can definitely attract some sinister people who just want to have fun or make a little profit – especially if your website also includes an e-shop.
Not only do you need to protect your website from these kind of attacks, but also your visitors! They need to be safe and they need to know it! If your developer doesn’t have a clue about security, stay away and don’t even think about cooperating with them. If you do, you will probably end up paying other experts to clean your website from malicious re-directions and codes, while your customers will probably send you complaints about their credit cards being hacked while shopping from you.
So make sure your developer knows how to prevent attacks and knows how to keep your website safe from malicious software, before deciding to hire them.
