Web security is often overlooked by small business owners, bloggers and personal website owners. That is, until they find something wrong with their website, such as loading funny text, redirecting to other sites (usually porn sites), or the site just doesn't load anymore.
Sometimes it's more of a prank or just some random hacker trying to prove his skills, other times you could be held ransom to restore your website. When shit hits the fan, usually the website owners will be panicking and at a loss. Shocked and unable to restore their websites to their former glory, they may turn to their IT department, who usually specializes more in hardware than software and are unable to help.
Next they may turn to their web designer, who also usually does not focus much on web security and lack the necessary knowledge and skills to rectify the problem. They may also turn to their web-hosts to restore a previous backup (assuming there was one), this may be fine for brochure sites without frequent updates.
However, if it were an e-commerce site, or an active blog with multiple updates daily, think of the losses this could mean for you as a business or as an individual who may be relying on your website for income.
If all else fails, you may be forced to either pay a web security company to 'clean' and restore your site or if the damage was too significant, you may need to rebuild your website from the ground-up.
The first option could cost you thousands of ringgit, the latter would cost you even more as rebuilding your website from the ground-up means your business is going to have down-time. Add that to the cost of redevelopment and you are left with a huge hole in your bank account.
