With the surge of many businesses transitioning to have an online focus, whether its an online store or digital marketing avenue, hacking has seen an increase across many sites! Well how can you protect against this?
Update your plugins! Outdated or unsupported plugins are the number one way websites are hacked. Hackers are always on the prowl to find holes within the security of your website.
When a plugin author sends out an update, they usually include important security measures to fight the hackers. Hackers are constantly finding ways past these security measures, thus supported and often-updated plugins are a must!
This is a service we include in our Maintenance Plans. We know how we all are running our businesses so something like this can sometimes take a back seat to things with higher priority.
