Every single day tens of thousands of WordPress websites are attacked. Hackers inject spam on your website, redirect your site visitors to other sites, delete your website files or take over complete control of your website.

It’s quite scary what a hacker can do once they have access to your website.

If you’re a WordPress website owner who thinks their website is too small or too insignificant for a hacker to target, think again. You see, most of the WordPress website attacks these days are completely automated which means no website is safe.

Hackers look for vulnerable websites that make it easy for them to gain access. It’s your responsibility as a website owner to take security into your own hands and make a hackers job as difficult as possible so they go elsewhere.

By the end of this course you’ll know and be able to implement the exact steps needed to protect your WordPress website from a variety of common attacks.
