Perhaps a different terminology is needed for information or presentation
that does not need protection.  I personally think it is a black eye for a
web site to be defaced by hackers, but I agree that it might be less
expensive to just periodically replace what is there with what you had in
some backup.  I also agree that it is much more expensive to cope with having
your core data corrupted or stolen than say being a simple denial of service
attack victim.
