It seems like not a day goes by without someone I know having their website breached, either because they haven’t had a webmaster to actively monitor & manage their website, or because they trusted this task to someone without the necessary know-how and technical skills.
We strongly suggest you get someone to keep on top of things, and this could be done from as little as 1-hour per week, so it won’t break the bank.
If your website runs WordPress then remember to:
- Keep the WordPress core updated. Always.
- Update your plugins, especially premium plugins
- Use strong passwords to prevent brute force attacks
- Use a WordPress plugin to do the heavy lifting. We recommend Wordfence which will limit login attempts, has a firewall, will scan your website for malicious code and keeps you updated with email notifications.
