An overview about WordPress security. WordPress has been responsible for a quiet revolution on the web, bringing ease of use, flexibility and functionality to website design.
Even relatively small businesses can have a professional web presence and can take advantage of the exciting marketing opportunities provided by the Internet.
WordPress gives a business the tools to respond quickly and positively to marketing opportunities as they arise and inform customers of the very latest products offered by your business. In fact, it is now the cornerstone of your marketing.
Did you know that more than 27% of the world’s Websites are now built in WordPress making it the most common content management platform on the Web.
A major question at this time is "What if it all goes wrong?". What if my WordPress security fails?
Unfortunately the Cyber-criminals who are responsible for spreading malicious code are very aware of this fact, and to them it spells opportunity. The criminals behind the hacking of sites and propagation of Malware have only one motive and that is profit.
Every WordPress site that they infiltrate and compromise becomes a source of revenue.
Make no mistake. WordPress sites are vulnerable for many reasons, but the most important one is they represent the biggest single source of opportunity so they are a specific target for the perpetrators of cyber-crime.
Once they have compromised your site, the fact may soon be registered by Google resulting in loss of rankings and even more importantly, what sort of message does it give to customers and potential customers.
