Can You Secure Your WordPress Site From Hackers? It’s 3am – Do You Know Who is Trying to Log Into Your WordPress Site?
Is Your WordPress Site Secure From Hackers? When it comes to security and the Internet, ignorance is definitely not bliss. Quite frankly, it is irresponsible, risky, and can even be a liability. To be very blunt and to the point – the Internet is not a safe space. It isn’t the informational playground where all of the nice kids go to play. With all of the beautiful things that it is and can be, the Internet is actually about as close to anarchy as you can get – “a state of disorder due to absence or nonrecognition of authority.” When you connect something to the Internet you are exposing it to everyone else in the world that is also connected. Everyone includes all of the people that are interested in the subjects or services on your website but it also includes millions of people who could care less about your website and want to hack it. To make matters even worse, these people with nefarious intentions have automation on their side. Their efforts are rarely manual efforts; at least not until they have compromised your website. These people have an army of computers and servers that find targets and then systematically attempt to compromise them. When a new site it placed on the Internet, it is literally hours before it is found and then attempts to exploit it begin.
Security…The Necessary Burden
Surely you knew all of this already…Right? So I go back to the title of this article – Do you know who is trying to log into your WordPress site? People are trying to log in. The question is whether you know about it or not. Do you care? You should care but securing a website is not the reason or passion that drives someone to start a website. It is the necessary burden that comes with the territory. Security is a distraction from the core competency or the passion of the site. It is the item that, if neglected, bites hard when things go wrong and your site is compromised. A hacked website can negate years of work in building followers, SEO, trust, etc., not to mention an enormous amount of work cleaning up and then finally securing the site like it should have been in the first place. This is a massive source of frustration to say the least.
