Securing your website

Google blacklists around 10,000 websites every day for malware and around 50,000 for phishing every week. Security is essential for every website, regardless of size.

The basics of securing your website are:

  1. Backup
  2. Monitor
  3. Update

Backup

Have regular website AND database backups. Automated is best, and to a location other than your webserver. Backups are invaluable in case of a security breach and also if a website change does something unexpected and you need to roll back.

Monitor

A web application firewall coupled with active monitoring and scanning will detect changes as they happen and can automatically block suspicious requests and brute force attacks.

Update

Components, code and libraries must be updated as vulnerabilities are found and fixed.
