I guess you have an expert who is responsible for your software. It doesn’t matter if you just have a website or a complex software solution. Even your collaboration works perfectly, you should be sure you are ready for bad times.

When you need to stop your collaboration with the person who is responsible for your software, you need to be sure he can’t attack your business. Well, based on my experiences I created this article and I hope it will help you to be ready for everything.

The real story

Let’s start with a short story happened to my client. One day they found out they don’t have images on their website anymore. Is it a problem? Of course it is, especially when the website is the main sales channel. What happened? The team that built their website hosted images on own server. It was a different server than for other website files. Well, they migrated main website files after they stopped the collaboration with the team, but nobody knew about the images server. The dev team removed all images from their server. How we resolved this weird situation? We asked a company that hosted the images for all images, set up a new image server and upload all images. The problem is we waited for hours to get all the images, the client paid extra money to the first company for all images to fix the main sales channel.

Checklist

I created a checklist for you with the main points you should be sure you can check. Keep in mind, this is just a basic list.

  • Your company owns your domain -> Billing information doesn’t matter. You have to own your domain.
  • You got a list of your server architecture. -> You don’t really need to know everything. You just need to have basic info on the list, so you can find where is your software hosted, who owns a hosting account, etc.
  • You have every license you need. -> Do you have a paid font? Paid library? Or anything else? Be sure you have the right license for you and your software.
  • Own all the accounts you are using. -> You need to have an account for all your tools, assets, and so on. Are you using Google Analytics for example? Be sure you created that account.
  • Don’t share your credentials with everybody. -> Of sure, you need to share your credentials sometimes, but not every time. For example, you don’t need to share your credentials from Google Analytics, you can just invite a person.

It’s much cheaper to ask some expert who can easily double-check you are safe than let someone attack your business.
