Websites are never safe on the internet. They are always at risk from hackers. If a website is not secure, it has greater chances of being compromised easily. Worse still, hackers are forever on the prowl so protecting valuable data becomes necessary in today’s time to keep business going. Hacking and malware can damage the website in many ways, from uploading phishing scripts to stealing valuable data to performing DDOS attacks. A lot can go wrong if a site is hacked and worse still, it can adversely impact the integrity of the server in some cases. In extreme cases, a hacked website might get blacklisted by Google for its harmful activities which can affect a business greatly over time.
