Websites get hacked every day. By some estimates, about 30,000 to 50,000 websites get hacked every day. Actually, the numbers are growing every day and the importance of website security is increasing rapidly.
Being secure in the online world becomes more and more important every day and it is vital to protect your website and the data it holds now.
Without a proactive security strategy, businesses risk the spread and escalation of malware, attacks on other websites, networks, and other IT infrastructures.
A secure website creates an encrypted connection between your web browser and the site company web server. This encrypted connection prevents criminals on the internet from eavesdropping on your internet traffic with the purpose of stealing your information.
I secure my websites by using encryption. The encryption key is renewed regularly making it very difficult to hackers to access information. I also use Cloudflare, which is preventing the most dangerous type of attacks from hackers and has the added benefit of accelerating the speed of your website too.
