The security of the website and data is the biggest concern of most site owners. The website getting hacked is probably the worst nightmare and most businesses take a lot of precaution and deploy several tools to keep hackers away from their website. In this article, we will offer some tips to help you protect your Cloud Hosting Server from hackers.
As the old adage goes, ‘Precaution is better than cure,’ a local backup is an important precaution that helps you safeguard your data on the Cloud Hosting Server. Most hackers manipulate the data leading to the loss of important files and information. A local backup ensures that in case your website is hacked, you have a copy of your data which can be restored immediately.
Sensitive Data Management
If possible, avoid keeping sensitive data like personally identifiable information (PII) on your Cloud Hosting server. In case of a hacking attack, such information in the wrong hands can have legal and reputational repercussions. Unless absolutely necessary, avoid storing such information on the cloud server. Also, if you have to, then ensure that you deploy the best security measures to keep it away from cyber-miscreants.
