WordPress Version & Plugin Updates
If your website is built with WordPress it’s crucial to keep the WordPress version and plugins up-to-date to eliminate vulnerabilities. This is an ongoing process as new WordPress versions are being released all the time. Any vulnerability with the files can lead to a hacker attacking your website. Types of attacks vary but examples include sending SPAM emails to your clients or uploading additional pages or sections to your website advertising the hacker’s products.
WordPress Security Maintenance
Having reliable security measures in place from the start is key to ensuring that your website is not a target for hackers. As standard, we always add basic security precautions into every WordPress website but on-going maintenance is also available.
WordPress Website Security Audit
I offer WordPress website security audit for any of the websites that I have created using a custom WordPress theme*. This security audit includes installing WordPress security plugins, scanning for malware, changing the database prefix (usually this has already be done), changing the default login page URL, and other basic steps to keep your website secure.
* Unfortunately, I do not offer this service to websites that use pre-purchased themes or which we have no developed directly.
