I wrote this some years ago, but I believe it still applies today.

Hackers are clearly honing their skills as we continue to see stolen credit card data from some major players, and we’re talking now about intrusion attempts from all over the globe probing millions of networks for entry points. More often than not, it’s not you they’re targeting.

They’re looking for opportunities across the breath of the Internet. If your network is vulnerable, trying to recover from an intrusion is a whole lot harder and more expensive than securely locking it down upfront.
What steps should a web hosting provider take to properly secure their network in 2020? Your thoughts?

We focus on the servers and secure them by updating OS and software to the latest version. We also focus on backups by backing up data to various locations. This protects us from ransomware because we always have data to restore.

I don't think anything has changed from 2019 in this regard.

The bigger concern is how to protect our privacy.

Security is important at OS, network, access and hardware levels. It is a multi-faceted, multi-domain, inter-departmental necessity that can't be ignored anywhere.

Ignoring it is simply inviting attacks and avoiding responsibility.
