Did you know that websites experience an average of 58 attacks per day? That’s one cyberattack approximately every 25 minutes! Even more startling, as much as 61 percent of all internet traffic is automated traffic from bots, meaning these attacks do not discriminate based on the size or popularity of a website. No website is too small or too new to hack.

Breaking news: No website is too small to hide from a cyberattack.
Enterprises and big brands may receive unwanted publicity for cyberattacks and data breaches, but smaller doesn’t mean safer. In fact, website attacks increased 14 percent in Q1 2018 compared to Q4 2017 as cybercriminals set their sights on independent websites and small businesses. A successful attack can result in a loss of revenue, a drop in traffic, and damage to the business or website’s reputation. The good news is? There are easy and effective ways website owners can protect their sites and reduce their risk. Knowing what you’re up against is the first step to creating a safe experience for your website and visitors.
The SiteLock Website Security Insider Q1 2018 analyzes data from over 10 million websites to pinpoint the threats website owners need to be aware of. As a new feature to the report, SiteLock surveyed 250 website owners to assess their knowledge and preparedness of cybersecurity. Below are some of the key findings and first steps to securing your website. For more insights and actionable advice for all website owners, download the full report.
As we continue to watch the global fallout of the leaking of the NSA’s secret surveillance of everything from phone calls to Facebook, one of the more interesting and perhaps disturbing revelations was that the embarrassing leak of top secret U.S. spying operations came from a trusted insider.
What was perhaps even more disturbing was the fact that the alleged whistle-blower had largely unsupervised access to some of the biggest U.S. intelligence secrets, in spite of the fact that he was only on the job for a few years and actually started as a facilities security guard.
In a single day, websites experience, on average, nearly 60 cyberattacks. And for small businesses, successful attacks can have a lasting impact: 60% of small businesses will go out of business following a successful breach due to the costs of recovery.
In this article, we’ll talk about IT security incidents, which are events that indicate an organization’s systems or data have been compromised or that existing cybersecurity measures have failed. The key to staying afloat during an IT security incident is preparation — and effective communication is a major component in that. Knowing how to communicate transparently, both internally and externally, in the wake of an attack not only builds trust with your employees but also helps protect your reputation.
