    It depends on the kind of application you are running for your website and the webserver service you are using.

    You’re asked to make sure your technology systems are compliant with the numerous compliance and privacy regulations today – but simple point in time audits are not enough. With content created at exponentially increasing rates, it’s impossible to ensure constant, proactive compliance with one audit.

    This white paper reviews best practices and available solutions for developing and implementing a comprehensive risk management approach with our “Say it, do it, prove it” approach:

    Say It: Discover data across all of your information gateways
    Do It: Take corrective actions and place controls on regulated, sensitive or private data
    Prove It: Monitor and report on content and systems for ongoing compliance

    Fill out the form to the right for your free copy of the white paper today.

    Web sites are unfortunately prone to security risks. And so are any networks to which web servers are connected. Setting aside risks created by employee use or misuse of network resources, your web server and the site it hosts present your most serious sources of security risk.

    Web servers by design open a window between your network and the world. The care taken with server maintenance, web application updates and your web site coding will define the size of that window, limit the kind of information that can pass through it and thus establish the degree of web security you

    Website security is any action or application taken to ensure website data is not exposed to cybercriminals or to prevent exploitation of websites in any way.

    First of all the website/application should be run with one of the latest stable versions of the code.

    The hackers will find loop holes using the vulnerabilities in outdated code versions.

    The plugins and themes are always should be uptodate. Always use themes and plugins from a trusted sources only.

    To improve the security, you may need to install an SSL certificate on your website so that you can prevent hackers from steeling the credit card information used on your website.

    For enhancing the security, you can install any Web Application Firewall to avoid potential hacks and malicious code injections.

    Always use complex FTP/SFTP and admin passwords for the website and change the passwords in regular intervals.

    Do a daily/weekly backup for your website and also perform a routine malware scan on your webfile to ensure safety of the website code. You can use some online web scanner to check this either.

    Always make sure that your server is installed with a software firewall to prevent syn flood and DOS attacks toward the websites. Also ensure that the server is installed with any anti-bruteforce softwares to protect your website from brute force based attacks.

    You can use CDN services like Cloud Flare to prevent DDOS to your website.

    Also make sure that the server is running on CloudLinux kernel, which provides advanced features to protect your website from Sym-link attacks and to prevent other kernel based potential vulnerabilities.

    Always do FTP/SFTP to the website from a virus free machine.
    Do not save the website passwords in your browser

    1. Protect your website with HTTPS

    2. Stay on top of your security updates

    Security updates are crucial for everyone. Hackers don’t care about the size of a business; if your website is insecure, they can break in. In fact, Hackers often target small businesses which may not be as up-to-speed on security as larger corporations.

    monitor your security updates by checking your content Management System dashboard. Most content management systems, such as WordPress, display the updates ready for download. If your CMS doesn’t or you are unsure, contact your hosting provider.

    check if your website is backed-up as part of your hosting package. This means that you will have a recent version of your website to go back to should your website get hacked.

    3. Be password savvy

    Just imagine: you’ve secured your website with HTTPS, you’re keeping on top of your security updates, your anti-virus is up-to-date and firewalls are in place…and then you blow it all with a weak password. Don’t fall at the final hurdle. Be smart when it comes to your passwords.
