ARTICLE SUMMARY: When it comes to websites one of the biggest problems today is security, nobody is safe from hackers, nobody.

It’s no surprise that as websites get more sophisticated in their design and security measures so do the hackers. Considering the average cost of a cyber attack on a small business is more than $25,000 security should be the number one priority in our design.

In an effort to help us combat the onslaught hackers Lindsay Pietroluongo has written “AN OVERVIEW OF THE WORDPRESS SECURITY AUDIT“. In this article Lindsay shows us

  • How to tell if there was a security breach
  • How to Evaluate the Security Plugin You’re Using
  • How to Test Your Website Backup Solution

When it comes to security there is no such thing as safe enough. We must always be on guard because the question is not “if”, but “when” will there be a breach in security and how will we handle it.

As Lindsay Pietroluongo says, “Keeping your website safe is an ongoing process, and having a go-to WordPress security audit checklist saves you the trouble of trying to remember what to do every month. Plus, the more you can automate with a security plugin, the better.”
