The security environment of the Internet seems to get riskier and riskier every year. Hackers and security professionals are locked in ever escalating battles and websites are subject to continual probing for vulnerabilities.
Wondering how to protect your Joomla website against hackers can keep you awake at night— and for good reason because dealing with a hacked Joomla site is a sure way to ruin your week (and sometimes month.)
But figuring out how to secure Joomla can be daunting and it's easy to dream up a silly story like, "My site is not that important, no hacker will target me," and then try to ignore your anxiety whenever you think about it.
Instead of laying awake at night, what if instead you could sleep like a baby because you knew you had methodically protected your Joomla site against hacking? Instead of ignoring that pit in your stomach, what if you were serenely confident in your website's security because you knew and had implemented Joomla security best practices?
Peace of mind is a wonderful thing and this Joomla security checklist will provide you with exactly that. We will go step-by-step down the list of best practices in order to remove vulnerabilities, secure your defenses, and make your Joomla site an extremely tough nut to crack.
