Fact: over 30,000 websites are hacked everyday. Fact: cybercrime costs the global economy over $450 billion. Fact: over 1.5 million WordPress sites were hacked in a single day this year due to a single vulnerability.
Don’t think website security isn’t important.
Cyber-criminals are out there using sophisticated software to scan the internet for any type of vulnerable website.
Hackers don’t care if your website is big, small, a non-profit, or profit making. A hacked website is worth money to them as they can either extort money from a website owner, or place links or code on the site to support some other type of criminal activity.
Online security is of paramount importance to every human being on this planet. This course is for everybody. There is very little use of technical terminology or advanced online procedures. Anyone with basic computer skills can protect any WordPress website by following this course.
The course starts with the two biggest causes of hacks on websites and shows you the simple and non-technical ways to protect yourself. The two biggest causes of hacks on WordPress websites are:

I then show how to set up and install the Wordfence Security plugin which will:
I demonstrate how to set up and schedule back-ups. So if anything goes wrong in the future you can restore your site back to an early copy.
I then go on to explain step-by-step technical methods to really lock down a WordPress website.
Don’t think that online security doesn't matter to you. Your online security is as important as your physical security.
My name's Rob Cubbon and I have run a web and graphic design business for over a decade. I have built countless WordPress websites for myself and others.
However, I have been hacked!
This was a chastening experience. Not only was this attach to one of my websites extremely costly in terms of money and time, but I was also shocked at my ignorance of many website security procedures.
Online security, website security, and WordPress security are now topics I take extremely seriously. I want to prevent other people from having a similarly terrible experience.
