Awareness Campaign for WordPress prevention
An ounce of prevention is always better than a pound of cure. During April 2019, a whopping 116 cases made headlines worldwide as stories. Stories to feed our constant need for breaking news and emotional fears. However, we would like to simply provide a point to provoke your caution and activate a mentality to prevent similar things to ever happen with you.
Average online sites are jeopardised not by sophisticated targeted attacks however by bots written to make use of openly recognised vulnerabilities. This can’t be truer in concerns to WP websites. These vulnerabilities consist of weak security procedures, out-of-date plugins and themes, and poor-quality web hosting and custom-made development. With WordPress powering 1 in 3 websites on the Web, it is no surprise that they are a popular target for both skilled hackers and script-kiddies alike. They are also a popular target for malware. WP sites are a lot more protected than their online siblings and sis. The lack of built-in security in WP is a misconception. Any open source script is susceptible to all sorts of attacks.
WordPress prevention is not hard. Cleaning up afterwards a disaster is. Please take a little time to review your approach. Start with WP Maintenance. By getting everything updated is the first step avoiding any unwanted attention. Second should be WP Security. Your individual usage of themes and plugins, users and 3rd party integration require tailored methodologies. The next focus must be WP Backup and WP Monitoring. Making sure, that you have a safety net is always a sure bet. Only after these, you can consider WP Speed Up and anything else, to give your visitors what they deserve: a perfect and safe online experience.
