Security for your WordPress site should be one of the if not the most important thing to consider once you have installed your site.
“There is no way any site can be 100% secure against hackers – it’s a fact we all have to live with. “
Hackers are always trying to find the holes and vulnerabilities in any and all websites, including yours. All you can do is minimise the risk by ensuring the security of your WordPress site but your site will never be 100% protected.
“Anyone who attempts to sell you 100% WordPress Security is selling you a service that does not exist.”
That is the bad news out of the way. What you can do is minimise the risk as much as possible by ensuring the security of your WordPress site.
There are people out there that will tell you that your security woes are all about WordPress. That’s just not true – at the end of December 2015 it was estimated that 25% of the worlds websites were running WordPress. There are over 1,000,000,000 websites online so that means that a staggering 250,000,000 sites are running WordPress – that’s one huge target. By comparison, Joomla, WordPress’s biggest competitor only powers about 3% of the web.
