When you think of securing Drupal, you probably think about being hacked
However, as ISO 27001 certified information security experts we know there's more to it than that. Information security is based on three key principles, known as the "CIA triad" - Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability. There are all kinds of ways these three vectors could affect your Drupal website.
A critical zero day exploit such as Drupageddon could result in someone gaining access to your website and exposing private data, a database server crash could destroy valuable records, a simple Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack could take your site offline. There are three common scenarios, all have happened to Drupal websites in the past.
