Why would a hacker attack my business website? I don’t have anything valuable. I don’t have credit card details or anything worth stealing.
This single question inevitably resulted in a debate that provided further insight into how business/self-employed people generally see website development and maintenance:
- Once a website is built that’s the end. It’s done now so I don’t need to look at it again.
- I paid you enough money to build the website so why would I need to keep paying you to look after it? It should just work.
- My website isn’t of any value to hackers because I don’t have anything of value to steal.
Needless to say,
“Ignorance is bliss (until something goes wrong, then it sucks)”
