WordPress sites can be particularly vulnerable because WordPress is so widely used, so hackers put a great deal of effort into uncovering methods of breaking into them. With that in mind we’ve put together this webinar specifically focusing on how owners of WordPress sites can improve the security of their sites.
Many business owners wrongly think that site security isn’t something they need to worry too much about because their sites are small. This is a big mistake. A small website is just as likely to fall victim to a security breach as a larger site, often more so. We regularly help clients whose small sites have been hacked. Putting a hack right after the event is much, much more work than ensuring that the site is secure in the first place.
