Web Security Essentials: Protecting Your Site

When dealing with websites the threat of digital attacks is a real thing. In today’s digital age, the security of a website is paramount. Cyber-attacks are constantly evolving, and hackers are becoming more sophisticated. It’s crucial to implement web development best practices for security to ensure that your website remains safe, and your users’ data is protected. We will be looking at some of the essential security measures you should consider when it comes to finding a web development agency.

Keeping software updated.

The simplest and most effective security practice is keeping all your software up to date. This includes your Content Management System (CMS) – plugins, themes and other components used in your website development. Updates often include security patches that address vulnerabilities, so neglecting them can lead to site exposure and malware attacks. Here at Ignite, we use a very useful platform to manage, update and scan every website that we host and manage. We do daily update checks with weekly virus scans and monthly backups of your website.

Having strong passwords and authentication.

Ensuring that your website is locked behind strong passwords for your user accounts and admin access. We encourage clients to create unique, complex usernames and passwords, and consider implementing multi-factor authentication for added security (MFA). Making sure that your MFA goes to a different email address or phone number that you have complete access to provides an extra layer of protection that will make it much harder for unauthorised users to gain access to your website.
