While your modern content management system offers unparalleled functionality and ease of use, it vastly increases the complexity of the site code, presenting a much bigger “attack surface” to hackers. In addition, ecommerce sites contain sensitive data which further increases the hacker’s motivation to get inside.
It is possible and of course essential to build a site with security best practices in mind, however new vulnerabilities are continually being discovered and patched with security updates to the CMS core or module code. So to keep a site secure means keeping it up to date.
Should the worst happen, and your site be compromised, it is essential to have a set of current database and file backups so that you can wipe the web server clean and restore from a clean backup – making sure to patch the vulnerability this time!
