Website security has become a serious concern for all site owners. Once upon a time you could say nobody would want to hack my fruit and veg shop’s web site and you would have been right.
Nowadays that is not true. If you have an online presence there are people out there who will be trying to break in. WordPress is such a popular publishing platform that sites built with it are regularly targeted.
Your first defense is to ensure your site is initially securely set up.
The next best defense against hacking is to ensure all the code that goes together to make up your site is kept up to date. This means regularly updating your core, your plugins and your theme. The good news is that much of this can be done automatically, however it does need a real person to monitor auto updates and do any manual updates that are required.
You need to ensure you have satisfactory backups to enable your site to be easily recovered if something does go wrong.
These should be considered an absolute minimum. There are many other steps to enabling you to sleep peacefully at night and we can advise what additional steps would be sensible for your situation.
We can, for an annual fee, manage all these issues for you. Please contact us if you wish to discuss a WordPress maintenance arrangement.
