With nearly 455 million sites on the internet using WordPress, it consists of 40% of the internet. As an Open-Source content management system, WordPress was primarily created for developing blog-related sites. However, due to its simplicity, it is being used for developing other types of websites such as for business, membership, online courses, non-profits, portfolio, social, e-commerce, and much more.
Whether being a website developer or not, anyone can quickly build a website using WordPress. Nonetheless, when it comes to website security, website administrators rarely emphasize WordPress Security hardening apart from creating a complex password for the WordPress login-in dashboard. The reality is different whether you are a small site owner or big; everyone is a 'Target.' Unfortunately, even having a complex password to login-in to access, thousands of WordPress websites are still hacked every day.
WordPress website hacking happens for numerous reasons; for instance, outdated and vulnerable plugins, themes, outdated core WordPress, etc. It could also happen due to human error, as we humans operate the WordPress dashboard. In this talk, Sahil will simplify WordPress Security for Site Owners by briefing them on how hackers will enter their WordPress websites to hack them? How site owners can harden their WordPress Security? How to choose the best plugin/themes from a security perspective? How to regularly monitor your WordPress site's security? And provide many useful WordPress tips in the talk.
