As ridiculous as it may sound, a door being left open on your website can cause havoc. 47% of all hacked websites have a door left open by the hacker (that means they leave a way for other hackers to get in). And this is how your site can be exploited again and again.

Not
all attacks on your website are targeted. Hackers employ automated tools which look for vulnerabilities: Bad security; sites that haven’t been updated; outofdate plugins. So it’s really important that you include your website in your cyber security planning. Especially if you use WordPress, which is great, but leaves you at high risk of attack due to third party plugins. 

How do you keep your website from being hacked?

Always run updates as soon as they’re available. Use trustworthy hosting and security providers don’t simply choose based on cost.
Make sure you have the relevant security plugins and learn about how the security plugin ecosystem works.
Consider outsourcing the problem to an expert. Many good IT support providers will be able to keep your website protected and secure.
Ensure your SSL certificate is kept up-to-date.
