There can be–what seems to be–a wide range of advice on how to build and host a website or app. Above all, start with security as a foundation and build from there.
I build tech projects with industry standards & reliable frameworks in order to provide value & measure success.
I believe that if you plan and build with security in mind, the typical inputs/outputs of business then become more confidential, accountable, trustworthy, and private. At the very least it gives more confidence to others in your product/service chain (e.g., customers, banks, credit card companies, vendors and more). At the very most it reduces business risks and improves outcomes–it’s that simple.
