Is Your WordPress Site Secure from Hackers?
WordPress is an excellent tool to help site owners build professional looking websites. But these days, this platform can also be a gateway for criminals to attack.
WordPress is the world’s most popular website builder. The vast majority of small business owners use WordPress to create professional looking websites. This popularity means more attention from criminals and hackers.
Hackers are constantly on the lookout for WordPress websites that haven’t been set up correctly. They are hoping to find security weaknesses. Weaknesses that will allow them to post spam content, steal customer information, inject code, or even take over the entire site.
For each of these attacks, their goal is to make money off of your website, off of YOUR hard work.
Once your site is hacked, you’re at risk for a long list of serious problems. At the very least, your site could be blacklisted by Google and you could lose the trust of your readers. On the other end of the spectrum, you could be at risk for some serious legal and financial troubles.
Cleaning up a website that has been hacked is a nightmare of recoding and rebuilding, which will cost you a great deal of time and money.
Protecting your WordPress site also makes sense from a legal standpoint. Remember, hackers always have an ulterior motive. They are trying to steal information, gain clicks to links, and promote their own agendas.
If your site becomes vulnerable to a hacker’s attack, you are suddenly a part of these illegal activities and could be held liable. Or, if you store customer information on your site, this could be lost due to a hacker’s attack.
If privacy information, like customer payment information, is stolen from your site by hackers, then you as the website owner will be held liable. This could cost you thousands of dollars in penalties and legal fees.
That’s why – right from the start – it’s a great idea to secure your WordPress website.
Protect Your Site Before the Attack Comes
It just takes a little bit of ‘know-how’ to put the correct settings, safeguards, and plugins into place. With a few basic concepts and settings, your site will be safe from anyone trying to do you harm.
These security skills will help you regardless of the type of WordPress site you run. It doesn’t matter if you have a WordPress site for your small business or simply a well-trafficked blog. Either way, learning about WordPress security is a smart and easy step to secure your website.
Once you’ve learned how to properly secure your WordPress website, you’ll be safe from things like:
- Spam comments,
- Injected code to turn your comment section into a virus haven,
- Attacks that steal your passwords, credit card numbers, and other personal information,
- Ransomware attacks where hackers make you pay money to regain access to your site,
- Illicit content posted on your site that could get you into legal trouble,
- And much more.
Remember, whenever your site is infected with malware, Google will flag your site as “unsafe.” Then, they will show all future visitors a warning before navigating to your URL. As you can imagine, this will deal a serious blow to the trust your site visitors hold for your website. Not only that, you will no longer show up in Google searches and will be disqualified for Google Ads.
Just to give you an idea, in November of 2020, Google reported over 3 million warnings each week to website browsers. If your site ends up on this blacklist, it will cost you site visitors and money. https://transparencyreport.google.com/safe-browsing/overview

3 Ways to Make Sure Your WordPress Site is Secure
If you’re ready to take action and arm yourself against a WordPress hacker, then you’re probably wondering where to start. You’ll want to find a well-respected resource that can provide you with step-by-step instructions.
One of the best ways to make sure your site is secure is by working with a trained cyber security professional. This way, they can advise you on exactly what settings and plugins you’ll need for your site.
This can be expensive though.
Many cyber security professionals would charge thousands of dollars for their time just to consult on projects like this.
Then, there’s the second option – you try to set everything up yourself!
If you are a DIY WordPress warrior, you’ve probably tried your best to set up the site so that it operates well and keeps your information secure.
You could rely on a plugin to solve your problems, but a good security plugin is expensive and do you really know how it works or if it protects your data?
How do you know if you set everything up correctly? Did you do enough? The only way you’ll know that you missed a step is after an attack has occurred.
Then, it’s too late.
There’s a third option you might consider. It’s an online course where you will learn directly from a trained cyber security professional. You’ll watch step-by-step demonstrations that teach you how to configure your own WP site so that it’s safe and secure.
You’ll also be a part of a learning community with access to the course instructor for questions and help should you need it.
