Why you need a disaster recovery plan

Security matters

I can do a lot to protect your website from malicious attacks, but no site is 100% secure. You’ve probably seen high profile attacks in the news on an almost daily basis.

Everything I do is designed to keep you at the front of the pack, which makes a data breach highly unlikely. However, this is data and nothing is certain.

Plugin and theme vulnerabilities

Your WordPress site uses a theme and a number of plugins which are designed to work with WordPress but may not interact well together. Your theme and each one of the plugins present a potential security threat in their own right. Staying on top of updates is a good idea. But what happens if an update goes wrong?

User error

If your site is secured and updated regularly then you’re doing a great job. What could go wrong? The answer is people because we all make mistakes.

Hosting liabilities

Most websites are hosted by a third-party Internet Service Provider (ISP). Most often WordPress sites reside on a shared server with other websites. What happens if your ISP is compromised?

Here are some of the questions you should ask yourself

  • What happens in the event of total data loss?
  • Do you have regular clean back-ups?
  • Can you restore your website?
  • How quickly do you need to restore your website?
  • Do you need to mirror your website?
  • Do you need a staging area for updates to be applied in a terstenvionment first?

I can tailor a support package to suit your needs.
