When was the last time you had a website security assessment completed on your site?
If you answered, “Never”, you’re not alone. A CNBC study found that only 2% of small business owners felt that cybersecurity and attacks were a threat to their business. However, 43% of attacks hit small businesses. And when a small business is hit by a cyber-attack, it feels it – to the core of its bottom line.
Cyber threats are costly, not just to your bank account to get them fixed, but to win back the trust of customers whose data may have been compromised. It can take a small business months or years to recover – and some go under after a cyber-attack. 60% of small businesses go out of business after a cyberattack.
Off-the-shelf website assessment tools typically can’t provide individual detailed code-level analysis. This is a key differentiator as we’ve alerted such companies as Securi, Host Gator and others to next level breaches and vulnerabilities that their systems were not yet programmed to detect.
Hackers are always at work, but we work hard to stay one step ahead. Use that your advantage with a website security assessment from Dashboard Interactive.

What Is a Website Security Audit?
A website security audit is like an inspection of your car. When you bring your car in for inspection, the mechanic checks important safety features – the lights, the brakes, the alignment, and more.
A site security audit ‘looks under the hood’ of your website to spot any potential cracks or gaps that cybercriminals can exploit. For example, 64% of companies have experienced web-based attacks. Among those attacked, 59% of companies experienced malicious code and botnets and 51% experienced denial of service attacks.
These are web-based security problems that can be prevented, identified, or deflected so that your company remains unharmed.
Our web security audits include a thorough evaluation of the following:
- SSL Certificates
- Malicious Code
- Theme Files
Individual items that may pass the audit separately will then be audited to determine how they interact with each other as well as with pre-exiting code and any new code that may have been applied. There may be incompatibilities that can sometimes create some points of entry.
