Chapter 9. Security and Administration

As the proprietor of an online store, you are ultimately responsible for its success. A part of this responsibility is to make sure your store is both secure and operating at peak performance. Just as you're the one who would lock up a brick-and-mortar store at the end of the day, it's important that you safeguard your online store from cyber thieves as well as those who will access your Magento 2 backend.

It's also important to optimize your store for speed to give your online customers the very best shopping experience possible. No one likes having to unduly wait for pages to load.

In this chapter, we will go over the configurations that you can handle yourself:
