Online security is of paramount importance to every human being on this planet. Therefore, this WordPress Security: Secure Your Site Against Hackers course is for everybody. There is very little use of technical terminology or advanced online procedures. Anyone with basic computer skills can protect any WordPress website by following this course.
Don’t think that online security doesn’t matter to you. Your online security is as important as your physical security! The two biggest causes of hacks on WordPress websites are:
1. Easily guessed or stolen usernames and password
2. Out of date software
Fact: over 30,000 websites are hacked everyday. Fact: cybercrime costs the global economy over $450 billion. Fact: over 1.5 million WordPress sites were hacked in a single day this year due to a single vulnerability.
Cyber-criminals are out there using sophisticated software to scan the internet for any type of vulnerable website. Hackers don’t care if your website is big, small, a non-profit, or profit making. A hacked website is worth money to them as they can either extort money from a website owner, or place links or code on the site to support some other type of criminal activity.
