WordPress Users: Is Your Site Safe?Paul Mauer
WordPress is the most popular website platform, powering 27% of the Internet – more than 1.1 billion websites, pages and blogs (source: Torque®). It’s versatile, functional and has numerous features. And for small business owners, WordPress is one of the quickest and easiest ways to get your business online. Unfortunately, this ease of use has resulted in wide adoption and thus made it a common target for hackers.
WordPress uses open source code and has more than 47,000 available plugins and applications, making it highly vulnerable and susceptible for security breaches.
The bottom line? While WordPress remains a fantastic solution for most small business owners, it is one of the top 3 most susceptible platforms to hacking (source: Sucuri 2016). Moreover, approximately 70% of WordPress sites are unprotected against online threats (source: SecurityIntelligence.com).
