I am evaluating Civi currently using WAMPServer with Wordpress (which our website is built on). Civi creates a webpage as a front end for things like showing event information and registration etc.
While the idea is to have Civi as a plugin on the back end of our website and be therefore attached to it, we don't necessarily want any event information being displayed on the website. Rather, the CRM would just be used to manage and track that information and we would manage the registration etc. internally (At least for now).
My question then is; does the webpage content have to be visible to the end user or can it be hidden and Civi be used purely as a backend system? Subsequently, what are (if any) the security risks of having this auto-generated page dishing out potentially confidential information.
Total noob to Wordpress and Civi so apologies in advance.
