According to a recent post by Royal Pingdom that compiles some intriguing Internet stats, there are roughly 634M websites in the world and around 51M are taking birth every passing year. But let’s face it: When it comes to the Web, we’re often careless. We don’t update our website regularly, skip taking its backup and rely blindly on poor hosting and third-party plugins, too. Then there are other cases as well when in spite of taking care of the basic precautions, our website gets compromised. Enough is enough: We all need to care more, give more attention to our website and make things way too difficult for hackers or automated scripts, so that neither our data nor our server gets misused in any manner.

Unfortunately, there’s no surefire way to ensure the security of a Joomla website, or any website for that matter. Upgrading your site regularly, giving complete rather than partial attention to it, and taking a professional help sooner than later, however, can help you safeguard your data as well as your server against a majority of threats.
