For my clients who use WordPress, I’m offering a “Backup, Security and Updates” service. The web seems to be becoming an increasingly hostile place and therefore web security and the ability to recover after disaster become more and more important. In the last year we have seen a massive attack on WordPress sites worldwide.
My WordPress Backup, Security and Update Service
I’m going to use my time, some WordPress plugins that I have paid for and other services to provide increased security as a preventative, prompt updates to keep the software current and a backup system should the worst happen.
There are things that we can do, as a one off, to harden up the security of a WordPress installation. There are also additional bits of software (plugins) that can be used to provide a lot more security, diagnostics and reports.
The majority of all WordPress hacks happen because something is out of date!
