Checklist to Make a WordPress Site Secure

This WordPress security checklist is meant to target a non technical user. By this I mean a small business owner, or individual running a WordPress website, not a technical checklist for a WordPress developer. There are a lot of things not on this list that should be, but without the technical knowledge, I don’t feel it is worth going into here. Hire a WordPress Developer instead. : )

WordPress Security

WordPress security is not optional. If you don’t secure your WordPress website you will most likely get hacked. For the small investment of time (or cost if you hire a WordPress developer to secure your website for you), it will save you time, money and aggravation down the road.

To keep WordPress secure, this is not a one time checklist to do and forget it. All of these items need to be reviewed and updated regularly.  Many people don’t take the time to keep WordPress secured and ignore it until the site crashes. I promote proactive, regular  WordPress maintenance services vs panic mode when your site crashes.
