How can I protect my website from Hackers?

hackersAre you worried about the threat of hackers to your website? Well you should be. Every year over 40,000 web sites around the world get hacked and most of them are Open Source CMS software like Wordpress, Joomla and Drupel.

Is your web site going to be the next target? Well it doesn't have to be. It is relatively easy to protect your web site against this sort of activity by taking some basic steps.

  1. Ensure your software and plugins are always up to date
  2. Install a security plugin on your CMS
  3. Do regular on and off site back ups of your web site.
