38,000 Websites Get Hacked Each Day
Don’t Let Yours Be the Next Sitting Duck
As the digital world expands, so does its dark underbelly. The number of cyber attacks per week has exploded since 2020, and is only increasing each day. As of May 2023, a website gets hacked every 2.3 seconds! Shield your site against these relentless threats with Lime’s potent website security packages.
Types of Businesses at Risk
Hackers are equal-opportunity attackers. It’s inexpensive for them to create “bots” – automated programs that probe for and target vulnerabilities, to scour the web for sites to attack. So, they don’t discriminate based on the size of a business. It doesn’t matter if you own a little blog in a corner of the internet or you run a massive corporate empire – if you’re online, you’re on the radar.
How Cybercriminals Attack Sites
Hackers’ methods are as varied as their motives. From cracking a weak password, phishing, and finding secret backdoors, to just guessing, and beyond, hackers use every dirty trick in the book (and many that aren’t even in the book yet).
What’s in It for Hackers
In a nutshell, power and profit. Covertly and overtly seizing data, disrupting operations, conducting espionage, stealing customer information, and holding companies ransom are just a few of the activities of choice for cybercriminals.
Whether it’s trade secrets, business plans, financial records, or even just customer contacts and email addresses – anything you might have, they want.
Another common practice is to hack vulnerable sites for use in spamming operations. Hackers hijack legitimate forms on your site to send automated spam emails to their targets. They also inject code into your site to redirect visitors to nefarious sites, and unbeknownst to you, use URLs on your site in spamming campaigns.
These tactics let your site take the fall – like getting blocklisted in Google – for hackers’ unscrupulous activities.
What’s at Stake for You
More than you might think
The consequences of getting hacked are numerous. It could involve a complete loss of search rankings and organic traffic, as search engines blocklist your domain for being linked to spam. There’s also damage to your brand image due to a defaced site.
Angry customers, lost prospects, and public embarrassment go hand in hand with a public breach. And then there’s the potential for disrupted operations, loss of proprietary data, and even legal penalties, to name just a few.
In financial terms, each website hack ends up costing an average of $6.6 million in direct costs and losses, according to a 2023 IBM study.
How You Can Protect Your Site
Setting up and configuring an effective server-based firewall is one of the best measures you can take to protect your site from these risks. While no security measure is a hundred per cent foolproof – even the highly protected sites, such as those of Australian Parliament House, New South Wales government, and Medibank, Kaspersky, and Symantec have been hacked – you can take steps to minimise the risks.
While high-profile hacks make headlines, they are the exceptions, not the rule. Nine out of ten hacks target unprotected websites of small businesses. So, while it may not be easy to prevent concerted, military-grade attacks, hardening your site’s security can deter and repel garden-variety cybercriminals.
Whose responsibility is it?
It’s a common misconception that website security is handled by web developers, IT teams, or hosting providers. In reality, each focuses on a specific area: developers on functionality or updates, your IT folks on your internal network, and your hosting service on their infrastructure (not your website).
Thus, without dedicated website security, you become your website’s first and last line of defence.
