Hey there,

For this episode of Tech House James and I talk political hackers, what to do if your site gets hacked and how to prevent it happening in the first place. Some key points are:

  1. Don’t panic
  2. Don’t take it personally
  3. Contact your hosting provider or ask a friend to help
  4. Search online for a local web development company to help out. Where I work at, Meta Digital, specialise in fixing hacked sites.
  5. Don’t get hacked in the first place 😉
    1. Keeping your website’s content management system (CMS) up to date
    2. Install security plugins/modules
    3. Setup a backup system
