Desde 2005 utilizando a ferramenta e acompanhando o crescimento dos usuários (comunidade) do CMS Joomla, no Brasil, resolvi obter um panorama da "indústria joomleira" a partir do convite recebido para atuar como curador da Sala 3 – Conteúdo, SEO e Mídias Sociais no Joomla!

Maintaining a secure web site is a top concern for many people. Everyone is looking for the one way to make sure their site is always running, safe, and secure. When someone expresses concern about the security of their site, I usually ask them how old their most recent backup is. Most don't know, or don't have any backup at all.
