Website Security

Want to secure your WordPress website? Here’s a simple checklist

With over a quarter of the world’s websites being created on WordPress these days, it has become the number one target for hackers.

Despite the WordPress framework being a secure environment, the addition of themes and plug ins creates an instant vulnerability for most sites. There are various ways of mitigating against these threats and the following infographic from Wordfence does a good job of describing the sort of things you should be considering when securing your website.

By coincidence, it also happens to describe all the features of the current Wordfence plug in. They are not the only ones to produce a security plug in for WordPress but Wordfence is definitely one of the best.

Why is your WordPress website vulnerable to hackers? This infographic will tell you

It seems like hardly a day goes by without a story about website hacking, data leaking and the business problems that arise from this activity.

If you have a WordPress website then the dangers of a hack attack are even more real as WordPress can be extremely vulnerable to certain types of attack.

The problem arises from the fact that over a quarter of the world’s websites are now on WordPress, and with the same logic that hackers used previously, designing viruses for Microsoft products as most of the world were on PC’s, today they are devising hacks for WordPress.

The key question though, is how do the hackers know what to attack?

We particularly liked this infographic from the fabulous people at Wordfence which shows you quite clearly, who is hacking, what they are looking for and by default, what you should be locking down.
