SiteLock sponsored and attended WordCamp Boston 2017 this past weekend. It was our second year in attendance, and as expected, it was a great event! In this post, we share some of our experiences from the event, including a slight hiccup and how we overcame it.

As a result, they may not have proper security in place to protect their sites in the event of a malicious cyberattack. Instead, they rely on “security by obscurity,” which implies that the less popular and attention grabbing the website, the less likely it is to be compromised.
In reality, there’s no such thing as “too small to hack.” Any business that has a website, regardless of number of features or amount of traffic, will always be at risk of cyber threats. Read our infographic to learn more.
