This will increase in the upcoming years if businesses don’t take serious measures.
This can be avoided by taking simple and best steps to protect your website in most cases.

No matter how secure the website is, it is always important to know that the possibility of losing important data or site access is very high.
So because of this, it is important to always have a background check on the back copy of your website.
Most of the hosting services provide automatic back up but it is important to still save offline.
And this is still considered as a good practice.
There are many tools and plugins available to create a backup of your website into a database and if you have any doubts regarding this you can contact us.
#4. SSL Integration

This also ensures that a hacker can’t get in the middle and intercept the information from your website.
This SSL protects your website users against ‘man in the middle’ attacks.
SSL has become a standard feature for many websites, but it’s important to integrate it right.
#5.Choose a secured hosting
It is always important to choose secure hosting and have to be aware fo the cyber threats happening around in order to protect your site from hackers.
In case of any security breach, you can communciatw\e with the hosting providers to quickly restore your site and resolve technical issues.
But before picking your hosting provider check if they can provide ongoing support with excellent customer service and quick response time.
Now here are some common signs which indicate a security incident;
– Your website can’t be accessed
– Passwords related to your websites may not work.
– Critical data might be missing or altered in the database
– Your computer might either crash or run out of memory.

So another precaution is to create a website security policy,
Specific requirements of the passwords are met and not to be leaked out.
State under which cases your works can share their work to email only after scanning attachments.
