Welcome to the CodeTrappers blog! Today, we’re going to talk about four scary yet undeniable truths about your new WordPress website security. These truths may be hard to hear, but they are crucial for you to understand in order to keep your website and its users safe from cyber attacks.
- Your website will be targeted by hackers. It doesn’t matter how small or obscure your website is, it will still be a target for hackers. WordPress is the most popular content management system in the world, making it a prime target for hackers. Even if you have strong passwords and keep your WordPress core and plugin software up to date, you still need to be vigilant about protecting your website.
- Your website is only as secure as its weakest link. The security of your website depends on all of its components working together. This means that even if you have strong passwords and regularly update your WordPress software, if you have an insecure plugin or theme installed, your website is still at risk. It’s important to regularly review the security of all the components of your website and remove any that may be vulnerable.
- Hackers use automated tools to find vulnerabilities. Hackers have access to a variety of automated tools that can scan websites for vulnerabilities. These tools can identify outdated software, weak passwords, and other weaknesses that can be exploited. This means that even if you think your website is secure, it may still be vulnerable to attack.
- Cyber attacks can have serious consequences. If your website is hacked, it can result in lost data, damaged reputation, and financial losses. It’s important to take website security seriously and invest in the necessary tools and resources to protect your website from cyber attacks.
