Why are Backups & Security Important ??
I have been asked this question a few times these past few months, and thought I’ll write a Blog post on it today – as to why is it necessary to take regular back-ups of your site – and also, why is it necessary to monitor your Security almost daily…

The biggest being to try and steal your data, for malicious intent, and to blackmail your users / clients for whatever reason. And if they can copy / steal your identity or your credit card details, etc, even better..!!!
