What is Cybersecurity?

As high-profile data breaches, such as Equifax, continue to dominate headlines,  the topic of cybersecurity – or lack thereof – has commanded greater attention. The word ‘cybersecurity’ has become the media’s latest buzzword…and for good reason. New research reveals that websites experience 63 attacks per day, per website on average – this is an upsurge from the reported 22 attacks per day in 2016.

It has become clear that regardless of a company’s size or industry, data breaches are inevitable.

The best advice anyone can give you is to make frequent, downloaded backups of your site in the event something happens to the live version so that the clean backup can replace the live, hacked version.

But what if there is no clean, viable backup available? In a world where websites have hundreds, if not thousands of files, how can any one person go about cleaning out an infection in just a small number of those files?
