WordPress Security: Overview

wordpress-logo-stacked-rgbWe love WordPress. WE especially love how it makes website management so easy for solopreneurs and small business owners who have better things to do than fuss with html and css code just to make a few changes on their websites. Unfortunately, with all of the great features of WordPress, there are also some dangers.

Since WordPress is such a popular site building platform, hackers love it too. Wordpress sites are very susceptible to attack by both bots and humans, so it is absolutely essential that you implement security measures on your WordPress website.

This morning, we received an email from the folks over at wpmudev. They have a brand new WordPress security video series that we wanted to share with you. The first video in the series is an overview of why it is important to have good security systems on your WordPress site. Other videos will cover specific topics in more detail.

Unfortunately, we cannot embed the videos to share them here on our site. To view the wpmudev WordPress Security Essentials videos, visit their YouTube Channel here.

If you are a WordPress developer, we highly recommend you check wpmudev out. They have a lot of great information. They also offer a membership program which gives you access to themes, plugins and other great tools to make your websites really zing.

So, are you using good security measures on your site? What are your favorite tools or techniques to keep hackers at bay? Leave your comments below.
