Security is the most critical feature of your website. Nothing can drive a visitor away from your website quicker or more permanently than a security breach. But the fact is no website is invulnerable. However, good security practices can go a long way to keeping your website as safe as practical.
The path to a website and back is actually quite long with several levels of security along the way.
All of the major Internet browsers, such as Google (Chrome), have their own, built-in security features.
When you visit a website your request travels over a network. The network is used to receive your request and return the results. The network has software that is regularly scanned for threats.
These are the computers that contain your website. Host servers are part of a large collection of servers located at companies that securely host other websites. These servers have their own, regularly scheduled scans for malicious software as well as physical security - highly controlled access to the computers.
Your personal or business computer probably has its own anti-virus software that helps protect you from malicious attacks. Examples include AVG, McAfee, Windows Defender, Norton, Kaspersky, Sophos, and Avast.
Content Management System
I'll use the WordPress Content Management System to create your website. WordPress has strong, built-in security.
Passwords have been around a long time for a good reason - they work. Long, mixed character passwords that are frequently changed are a strong deterrent to hackers. Better yet, a password management service such as LastPass or Keeper allows you to efficiently manage your passwords across all your devices.
The degree of protection your website has is totally dependent upon the security procedures that are not only created but also maintained.
I will leverage every security option I can to protect your website.
