What’s the Minimum Amount of Security Your Website Needs?

Have you checked that your website is secure even if you think your site is too small for the hackers to bother with?
Quote:
over half (54%) of the businesses surveyed for the 2018 State of SMB Cybersecurity report believe they’re too small to be a target for hackers. But the data paints a different picture:
  • 67% of small- and medium-sized businesses were attacked in 2018;
  • 82% of those attacked had antivirus software installed on their systems;
  • 72% had intrusion detection systems in place.
What’s the Minimum Amount of Security Your Website Needs?

How did you do on the checklist provided?

I have a site that currently has no login function but does use a DB. I placed a login script page on the site and collected over 3000 IP addresses and hack attempt query strings in a little over a year.

If you put up a site there will be someone trying to hack it in less than 2 hours.

Most people don't even know there are, or have been hacking attempts on their sites. Those that do know, are either knowledgeable on the subject ( (have minimized the opportunity for hackers to gain access and/or are monitoring with security plugins or apps) or owners of successfully hacked sites.
