“WordPress Security Starts With You!” This is a comment I tell every client during our WordPress training sessions and can’t overemphasize how important this is in maintaining a WordPress website. I tell our clients the following every time:
- Ensure that your home/office network uses secure passwords and WiFi is encrypted.
- Make sure that your operating system, all software, and browsers are up to date.
- Maintain backups of your website and always update WordPress & plugins.
- Always use strong passwords and never use one password for everything.
My instructions have been directly reinforced this week by two events within the WordPress and online world.
