Online Security Tools for Website Owners

 

Online Security Tools for Website Owners

 Introduction


In today's digital landscape, website security is paramount. From protecting user data to maintaining trust, strong security measures are essential. This blog post explores five valuable online tools that can empower website owners to take charge of their online security.

The Risks of Poor Website Security


Inadequate website security can lead to a host of issues, including data breaches, loss of customer trust, and significant financial losses. Hackers can exploit vulnerabilities to steal sensitive information, inject malicious code, or take down your site altogether. The consequences of a security breach can be devastating, both in terms of reputation and legal repercussions.

Benefits of Robust Security Measures


On the flip side, strong security measures can protect your website from these threats, ensuring the safety of user data and maintaining the trust of your visitors. By proactively addressing security issues, you can create a safer online environment, which can lead to higher user engagement and loyalty.

1. OpenDNS CacheCheck ( https://cachecheck.opendns.com/ )

OpenDNS is a popular Domain Name System (DNS) service provider. Large caches contribute to OpenDNS's speed, but sometimes outdated information might linger. CacheCheck allows you to see what OpenDNS customers see when they request your domain. If discrepancies arise, you can refresh OpenDNS's cache for that domain, ensuring visitors receive the latest version of your website.

Using CacheCheck can help you maintain the accuracy and timeliness of your website's data as seen by users. This ensures that any changes you make are quickly reflected, minimizing the risk of users encountering outdated content.

2. SSLMate CT Policy Analyzer ( https://sslmate.com/labs/ct_policy_analyzer/ )


Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificates encrypt communication between your website and visitors. Apple and Chrome have implemented Certificate Transparency (CT) policies to ensure SSL certificate validity. To combat SSL certificate misuse, Apple and Chrome have implemented Certificate Transparency (CT) policies. These policies require SSL certificates to be logged in public CT logs, which helps identify and prevent fraudulent certificates. The SSLMate CT Policy Analyzer checks if your website's SSL certificate adheres to these CT policies. If not, it's crucial to contact your certificate authority and obtain a compliant certificate to avoid browser warnings for your visitors.

3. SSL Certificate Checkers

SSL/TLS certificates play a vital role in website security. Regular SSL certificate checks are essential. ImmuniWeb goes beyond basic checks, ensuring your website's SSL configuration complies with industry standards and regulations like PCI DSS, GDPR, and NIST. This ensures strong encryption and protects your visitors from data breaches.

Using SSL Labs can help you pinpoint weak spots in your SSL setup and make the necessary improvements to enhance your website's security and build user trust.


4. Netcraft Site Report ( https://sitereport.netcraft.com/ )
 

Understanding the technologies powering a website can reveal potential security implications. Netcraft Site Report leverages internet data mining to reveal the infrastructure and technologies used by any website. This tool can reveal valuable insights, such as the web server software, hosting provider, and security features in use. This information can help you understand potential security implications and make informed decisions about your website's architecture.

5. Security Headers Check ( https://securityheaders.com/ )
 

Security headers are special directives sent by a web server to a browser. These headers play a crucial role in website security by offering protection against various threats. Security Headers offers a free service that analyzes your website's HTTP response headers and assigns a security rating. The tool also provides guidance on implementing missing headers, helping you improve your website's security posture.

By incorporating these online tools into your website security routine, you can gain valuable insights, identify and address vulnerabilities, and ultimately create a more secure online environment for your website and its visitors. Remember, online security is an ongoing process. Regular use of these tools and staying informed about evolving threats will empower you to safeguard your website and maintain user trust.

Usaha Menubuhkan Jabatan IT Negara dan melantik Ketua Perkhidmatan daripada Profesional ICT

Saya menyokong gesaan ini kerana ia bertujuan untuk mewujudkan jabatan IT Negara dalam Pentadbiran Kerajaan Malaysia. Dan Ketua utamanya adalah daripada pegawai IT Kerajaan yang layak dan seterusnya memusatkan sumber manusia IT kerajaan, diantaranya.

https://goo.gl/UcfzSu

Dengan pemusatan sumber manusia, kemahiran dan pengalaman pegawai-pegawai IT dapat disumbangkan dengan lebih meluas kepada semua agensi-agensi dan jabatan-jabatan dalam pentadbiran Kerajaan Malaysia. Tanpa ianya terhad kepada agensi dimana pegawai itu berada. Ia turut memperkasakan pengetahuan pegawai-pegawai IT Kerajaan kerana sumber ilmu dapat dikongsikan secara berpusat.

===

Saya panjangkan, daripada rakan-rakan ICT kepada yang lain. Atau baca di laman gesaan ini https://goo.gl/UcfzSu

Ringkasan, gesaan ini adalah bertujuan untuk mewujudkan jabatan IT Negara dalam Pentadbiran Kerajaan Malaysia. Dan Ketua utamanya adalah daripada pegawai IT Kerajaan yang layak dan seterusnya  memusatkan sumber manusia IT kerajaan.

Usaha Menubuhkan Jabatan IT Negara dan melantik Ketua Perkhidmatan daripada Profesional ICT.

Assalamualaikum dan salam sejahtera, Mohon kawan-kawan sebarkan dan viralkan petition berkenaan skim perkhidmatan skim teknologi maklumat ini. Terima kasih.

PENGENALAN.

Keputusan kabinet berkenaan perpindahan MAMPU ke Kementerian Komunikasi dan Multimedia Malaysia (KKMM) melalui surat bertajuk Cadangan Rasionalisasi Struktur Jabatan Perdana Menteri bertarikh 28 Jun 2018 dilihat sebagai reformasi baharu ke arah meningkatkan daya saing Teknologi Maklumat (IT) Sektor Awam. Ia seiring dengan fungsi agensi berteraskan IT lain yang diletakkan di bawah KKMM seperti Suruhanjaya Komunikai dan Multimedia Malaysia (SKMM) dan Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC). Namun begitu, arahan bertarikh 12 Oktober 2018 untuk mengekalkan MAMPU kembali di bawah Jabatan Perdana Menteri (JPM) melalui surat bertajuk Perakuan Pindaan Waran Perjawatan Berikutan Perubahan Semula Senarai Agensi di bawah Program Kementerian Komunikasi dan Multimedia Malaysia Tahun 2018, telah menimbulkan tanda tanya kepada banyak pihak.

Keputusan mengembalikan fungsi teras IT di bawah MAMPU dilihat tidak seiring dengan amalan terbaik negara maju seperti di United Kingdom melalui Government Digital Service, Australia melalui Digital Tranformation Office, Singapura melalui Govtech dan Korea Selatan melalui National Computing and Information Service. Prestasi perkhidmatan dalam talian negara tersebut dilihat lebih signifikan dan berdaya saing dengan meletakkan ICT sebagai satu entiti yang berautoriti bagi menjalankan aktiviti khusus berkaitan penyelidikan dan pembangunan khusus berkaitan ICT. Model ini seharusnya diadaptasi di Malaysia bagi memastikan prestasi perkhidmatan IT kerajaan yang lebih baik ke arah pembangunan yang mapan.

RESOLUSI.

Sehubungan dengan itu, kami mendesak agar pihak kerajaan mengkaji semula keputusan ini dengan mempertimbangkan dua (2) resolusi utama yang didatangkan bersama petisyen ini iaitu:

#1 MENUBUHKAN JABATAN IT.

Jabatan IT sebagai entiti yang berautoriti secara khusus dengan memberi fokus kepada reformasi pendigitalan penyampaian kerajaan meliputi aktiviti berkaitan penggubalan akta/dasar/polisi, penyelidikan, pembangunan, pelaksanaan dan penguatkuasaan program di bawah Pelan Pendigitalan Penyampaian Perkhidmatan Kerajaan yang diluluskan oleh Jemaah Menteri pada 11 Oktober 2017 serta aktiviti berkaitan IT Sektor Awam. Jabatan IT juga berperanan penting bagi menyelaras aktiviti tersebut merentasi kementerian dan agensi. Menerui Jabatan IT, perkhidmatan dapat dikoordinasi dengan lebih baik serta mengatasi pertindanan dan birokrasi di antara agensi bagi mengembalikan semula tahap penerimaan dan kepercayaan rakyat terhadap perkhidmatan dalam talian kerajaan.

#2 MELANTIK KETUA PERKHIDMATAN DARIPADA PROFESIONAL IT.

Sektor IT kerajaan hendaklah diterajui oleh Ketua Perkhidmatan dari kalangan Pegawai Skim Teknologi Maklumat (F) dan dianggotai oleh pegawai profesional yang berpengetahuan di dalam bidang IT. Ia penting bagi memastikan keputusan dasar yang lebih tepat dan realistik seiring dengan tuntutan semasa rakyat dan perubahan pantas ekosistem perkhidmatan kerajaan serta memacu profesionalisma Skim Perkhidmatan Sistem Maklumat. Pada ketika ini, bilangan pegawai Skim Perkhidmatan Sistem Maklumat yang dipusatkan di MAMPU telah melebihi 10,000 orang.

PENUTUP.

Kami menyokong penuh dasar dan kemimpinan baharu kerajaan yang dilihat lebih proaktif memperkasa fungsi perkhidmatan awam ke arah pembangunan negara yang mapan. Kami yakin Malaysia Baharu memerlukan reformasi perkhidmatan awam yang holistik dengan memperkukuh fungsi IT Sektor Awam. Dengan usaha bersepadu kami yakin Wawasan 2025 untuk kembali meletakkan Malaysia di landasan negara maju bakal tercapai.
