Many website owners believe that their sites will enjoy a relative degree of safety from hackers because hackers only target big companies, and their businesses or websites are too small or unimportant to be a target.
60% of all online website attacks were at small to medium businesses. And because smaller online entities simply don’t have the resources or safety nets in place to protect from these attacks, another study found that 60% of small businesses that have suffered a cyberattack, they close down within the year.
Your website doesn’t need to have a high profile or millions of visitors to be useful to a hacker. Once they’ve gained access to your site’s admin capabilities, they can wreak all kinds of havoc, including defacing or outright destroying your site, using your server to send spam to other people, distribute malware to your visitors, post link spam or redirect your visitors to a malicious website.
