In this episode, part 2 in this series, I’m going to be discussing WordPress website security, and the top things you can do to achieve top-notch security. I focus strictly on WordPress.org websites, some plug-ins to utilize, and best practices to use for ongoing security.

It's pretty easy to forget about those plug-ins that need to be updated if I'm not constantly on the back-end of my site. - Tia Hain Click To Tweet

Episode Highlights:

  • I share my favorite plug-ins for WordPress security
  • Defining of a “firewall” and “security scanner”, and what that means for your website.
  • I discuss the importance of backups, making sure you have more than 1 way to backup and my favorite plugin for backups.
...constantly have backups of your website stored somewhere. – Tia Hain Click To Tweet

3 Key Points:

  1. It’s crucial to have the right tools in place to protect your website.
  2. Be sure you have at least 2 processes in place for backing up your website.
  3. Taking the right steps, you can keep your site protected.
Be very, very diligent about researching plugins before you install anything on your website. – Tia Hain Click To Tweet
