Frequently asked questions.

Is Wordpress the best option?

If a website is updated regularly on most of its pages and not just the blog, WordPress can be an excellent tool for building and maintaining it. However, if regular updates are not made, the benefits of using a CMS that slows the site down and is open to hacking may not be worth it. We invite you to have a conversation with us to discuss alternative options to WordPress.

I don't show my password to anyone, how would they hack my Wordpress website?

Just one example is a 'brute force attack', which is a common type of cyber attack that can target WordPress websites. In a brute force attack, hackers attempt to gain access to a website by repeatedly trying different username and password combinations until they find the correct one. This can be done manually or using automated tools that can try thousands of combinations in a short period of time. WordPress sites are particularly vulnerable to brute force attacks due to their popularity and the use of default login credentials.

Can I use third party plugins or themes on my Wordpress site?

Yes, you can use third-party plugins or themes on your WordPress site, but it's important to choose reputable sources and keep them updated. Third-party plugins and themes can sometimes contain security vulnerabilities that can be exploited by hackers, so it's important to perform due diligence before installing them. Only use plugins and themes from trusted sources, and regularly check for security updates and patches.

In today's digital landscape, cybersecurity is paramount. Effective measures like malware removal, web application firewalls (WAF), and cloud-based solutions play a crucial role in safeguarding your online assets. Malware removal ensures the cleanliness of your digital environment, while web application firewalls (WAF) act as a shield against injection attacks targeting vulnerabilities in web applications. Additionally, embracing cloud-based security enhances flexibility and bolsters your defenses against evolving threats, including those posed by malicious websites. Protecting your online presence from these threats is essential in maintaining a secure and resilient digital environment. Implementing Duo security and an SSL certificate can significantly enhance the overall security and protection of your online systems and improve your search rank. To protect your site from potential security risks, including data breaches and unauthorized access to personal information, it is crucial to implement encrypted data, regular security patches, and robust web application security measures.
