Why is WordPress security so important?

Firstly, let’s quickly dispel one of the biggest myths about hackers.

When we think of a Hacker we tend to think of a coke drinking hooded youth in a darkened room. This is far from the reality of hacking. Most hacking, especially with WordPress, is entirely automated. Automated scripts, Robots or Crawlers, trawl the net seeking out vulnerabilities and then exploiting them.

With WordPress now powering almost 30% of the World’s websites it the prime candidate. If you know how WordPress works and all the default setting you can exploit it.

A hacked WordPress site can cause serious damage to your business revenue and reputation. Hackers can steal user information, passwords, install malicious software, and can even distribute malware to your users. Most worryingly you may never know that they are there, silently stealing your data or choking your site.

As a worse case scenario, you may find yourself paying ransomware to hackers just to regain access to your website.

WordPress security and GDPR

In the same way that it is the business owners responsibility to protect their physical building, office, shop or factory, if you own a website it is your responsibility to protect your business website.

The new GDPR compliance rules will put even more emphasis on protecting your website.

How do I know if I need better security?
