It’s no secret that websites face a barrage of attacks daily, up to 50 on average. But whose job is it to secure websites against those daily threats? Recent SiteLock survey data shows that nearly half (45%) of website owners believe that their web host is responsible for keeping their website secure. Nothing could be further from the truth.

You can think of it like an apartment complex. Much like an apartment building manager is responsible for securing the building’s perimeter, web hosts maintain server security. As tenants, website owners are responsible for locking their own doors and securing their websites. Join our Decoding Bytes hosts Security Analyst, Jessica Ortega, and SiteLock Support expert, Ryan Austin, as they explain what website owners are really responsible for when it comes to website security.
