Why Website Security is Important
Cyber-attacks are among the fastest growing crimes in the world, and nothing is stopping the increase in rate or sophistication of such crimes. Many very well-known companies such as eBay, Yahoo, Sony, Target, Adobe, and others were headline news after their customer information was hacked and stolen.
On average, about 30,000 new websites are hacked each day. WordPress websites can be an easy target for attacks because of plugin vulnerabilities, weak passwords and obsolete software.
Every day there is a story about the latest hacked websites. Most website owners think it will ever happen to them — until it does.
Note that hackers don’t discriminate between a small website or a large one, or a personal blog or an eCommerce business website. They often use automated programs and tools that crawl the internet and search for security holes and vulnerable sites. Once they find a way to enter a website, they can create all sorts of damage to the site and spread malware to other sites as well.
