Causes of hacked website?
What is the impact of the incident? How will it affect the website, company data, customers?

Step 5: Test, test and modify
A ‘never-complete’ response plan. When the problem occurs, you must quickly assert, provide the best network solutions to prevent denial of service attacks and network problems in the future.
