If you secure your server, the only risk is physical theft -- not remote access. Physical theft is mitigated by not being an idiot and selecting a good datacenter.
If you are not a system admin, then you had better hire a good company with a good reputation, otherwise you will likely misconfigure the server and leave it open to remote access. I should point out that when I say remote access, I am not at all talking about employees of the datacenter. The chance of that (what you describe) is zero. Instead, I am talking about brute force attacks to gain access and use your server as a botnet. Not to steal any data. No one wants your data.
Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.
Need help? 1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first. 2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses. 3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make. 4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance. 5) Where to start as a trader?

I would also add, not to steal your indicators or your strategies. No one is going to want them, either.
Really, you'd be an anonymous guy running some code on a server. Unless you're George Soros or someone like him, and they know it, no one is going to care enough to want to steal your secrets. They're safe.
