Recent statistics show that over 32% of website administrators across the web use WordPress.
Unfortunately, the CMSs popularity comes at a price — attackers often seek out vulnerabilities to exploit and target unhardened WordPress sites. If a site is compromised, it often becomes the host of malicious malware or spam campaigns, harming your website’s reputation and visitors in the process.
Knowledge is power, and we’re here to help! We’ve created a new WordPress Security Email Course to help improve your website’s security posture and reduce the risk of a security incident.
WordPress Security: A Beginner’s Guide
Our new email series educates WordPress site owners about basic security techniques and hardening recommendations.
Within the course contents, you’ll find important topics like: plugin and theme security, roles, the principle of least privilege, hosting, integrity monitoring, auditing, and alerts.
We’ll also dive into the types of security plugins you can use for your CMS, outline how to implement SSL & HTTPS, and explain why website backups are extremely important.
In five minutes or less a day, you’ll take away actionable steps to protect your site and mitigate hacks.
If you find the course too technical, the awesome community over at the WordPress Support forums are happy to lend a hand.
I’d also like to shout out to AJ for all of his help and hard work on the course and site content!
