Website security is more important than most companies realize. The fact is there is a world full of “not so nice people” that make it their mission to destroy countless websites every day. It sucks, it makes no sense, it hurts, and there is no gain. But the fact is, every day, every website is at risk to some degree.
See the following bytes from recent news:

So, do you still think it will not happen to you? Don’t worry, they don’t have to target you, they hurt countless small businesses when the they hit Godaddy.
Look Twice at the following:
A recent study found, that more than 60 percent of websites were hacked within the last two years. 40 percent of those attacks were against small and midsize business websites.
The study also revealed that 51 percent of small and midsize business website traffic is non-human and that 31 percent are potentially damaging automated malicious traffic from spies, scrapers, and spammers. ~more

1 – Any hosting service, is a target these days, again see Godaddy story above. The trick is to be “on duty” keeping a close eye on your networks. Use every tool at your disposal, close
2 – Because using our tools, your website backups are always up-to-date, you can restore your website within minutes of discovering it has been damaged. Generally, we recommend taking the entire ‘Hacked Website” offline, and moving it to a secure server for investigation. Then put a fresh copy of your website back online so you can do business as usual as quickly as possible.
