Having a website security breach protocol

Posted on July 27, 2016 at 8:35 am

If you are in charge of running a business that has a website then you should have some sort of plan laid out of what to do should your website come under attack and get hacked.

Unfortunately hacking happens more and more now and so many website owners are leaving themselves open to these types of attacks. Firstly you need to ensure that your website is up to date in terms of the software that you use, the servers it is hosted on etc. Your programmer should try to eliminate any possible hacks that can be done through valuable code.

If you do become victim to a website attack you need to take action immediately. If the hack is directing traffic somewhere else or collecting sensitive data, you should shut the site down immediately. If content within your site has been tampered then this needs to be removed and investigated to find out how they compromised the site.
