When it comes to WordPress security, there are a lot of things you can do to lock down your site to prevent hackers and vulnerabilities from affecting your e-commerce site or blog. The last thing you want to happen is to wake up one morning to discover your site in shambles.

Did you know that more than 73 million web sites in the world run on the WordPress publishing platform? This makes WordPress more popular than Microsoft SharePoint, Blogger, or Drupal. It also means that WordPress is a large target for hackers.

Half of the WordPress sites out there are self-hosted, which means that the WordPress administrator carries the lion's share of responsibility for a secure installation. Out of the box, there are several ways that WordPress security can be tightened down, but only a fraction of sites actually do so. This makes WordPress an even more popular target for hackers.

The strategies that you will learn in this course can help any WordPress installation become significantly more secure, and raise awareness of the types of vulnerabilities to defend against.

What you'll learn
  • Secure WordPress Websites
  • Scan their Wordpress Instance for vulnerabilities

  • Prevent Brute Force Attacks
