Website security is crucial in today’s world & we want to empower you! Join us for a free Lunch & Learn May 17, 2016 at Innovation Depot in Birmingham, AL.

Mayday! Mayday! Is your website sending out a distress signal that you don’t even know about? A lack of website security might be putting your site at risk — and that might mean Google isn’t ranking your site how you’d like. If you need a rescue, never fear — our Infomedia lifeguards are on-duty and ready to help. At our May Lunch & Learn, Does Google Trust Your Website? Use SSL and Security to Build Site Traffic, we’ll tell you everything you need to know. Here’s what you have to look forward to:

How do you choose the best passwords?

We still get a lot of questions about how to choose the best passwords and how to advise your employees on choosing passwords, so we’ll share our tips, tricks and best practices for passwords. This inspired a very lively internal discussion about how best to handle passwords, so we’re excited to see if you guys have as much to say about it as we did!

What is SSL and why does it matter?

SSL is a security certificate that ensures your data is sent via encrypted connection — does that sound like gobbledegook to you? Yeah, me too; but don’t worry, we’ll explain what it is and why it matters in terms real people can understand. SSL is pretty essential for websites that traffic in personal information like credit card numbers, but the rest of us could benefit from it, too. If you’re a little confused about SSL, we’ll explain it all.

How do you get an SSL certificate for your website?

If an SSL certificate is so important, how do you get one? We’ll walk you through what it takes to add an SSL certificate to your site.

What website security measures you should be taking to protect your site?

In addition to adding SSL, there are other security measures you can take to protect your website, your clients, users and passwords. These simple steps can save you a lot of time and money in the long run.

Free lunch from Taziki’s & Birmingham network opportunities galore

The free lunch we cater from Taziki’s is a big part of what makes Lunch & Learns a success — because it’s easier to justify spending your lunch break on professional enrichment if you know you’ll be able to actually enjoy a meal while you learn. And if you’re looking for a place to network in Birmingham, you’ve found it — most of our Lunch & Learn students work at up-and-coming businesses in the Birmingham area, and there’s plenty of time to mingle and chat before and after class.

Seats and lunch are limited, so claim your free Infomedia Lunch & Learn ticket here. (Can’t make it this month? Check out our 2016 Lunch & Learn schedule.) Because at Infomedia, we say there IS such a thing as a free lunch — and a little bit of free training, too.
