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.

But how can you find out your risk, and what can you do to lower your chances of a breach? SiteLock created a proprietary risk assessment to determine your likelihood of a compromise. The assessment reviews your site and calculates your risk score on a scale of low, medium, and high—ensuring you’re informed about any potential threats you might face.
