Professional Security and Backups for Course Creators with Akshat Choudhary of BlogVault and MalCare
2 days ago
Founder of BlogVault and MalCare Akshat Choudhary joins Chris Badgett on this episode of LMScast to discuss professional security and backups for course creators. Akshat and Chris dive into some of the different ways you can protect your online business from malicious software.
Like everything in life, you can never have absolute security with your online business. But it is still important to take enough precautionary measures to make sure you can survive an attack. Having backups is one key way you can bounce back from an attack to your site, so making consistent backups is definitely worthwhile.
Most online hacking attacks are done by automatic systems that scan millions of sites on the internet and seek out potentially vulnerable ones. Chris shares an experience he once had where hackers placed pharmaceutical ads on his sites, and when he was logged in as the WordPress admin, he couldn’t see them.
One of Akshat’s companies BlogVault is a way for WordPress users to backup their sites and ensure that if anything happens to their site they will have a backup to lean on. BlogVault has ways for you to do daily automatic backups for your site.
MalCare is Akshat’s other company in the cyber-security area. MalCare is described as a complete WordPress security solution. Analyzing data from over 250,000 sites is how MalCare can detect if there is ever any malicious software on your site. With MalCare’s one-click cleaner you can instantly remove the malware from your site with no hassle.
Building products around the customer is the best way to satisfy customers and adapt as the customer’s needs change and evolve. As Chris and Akshat discuss, customer service is especially relevant for course creators who want to create sustainable growth.
