Just like a car, a website works better with maintenance. Servicing a car will not stop a car from breaking down, but it will run better and minimise the chance of it happening.
Website maintenance will not stop your site from getting hacked, but minimise the opportunity for hackers to find a loophole, or an opportunity to get in.
Prevention is better than cure.
Please note that while we work together to keep your website strong and secure, we are not responsible for any hacker; unlawful cyber access; or malware attack, nor do we include the cleanup in your maintenance plan.
We do recommend taking out Cyber Insurance to protect your site, business and personal profiles, and to have a Data Breach Policy in place.
