WordPress powers one-third of the internet, and hackers understand economies of scale. As such, WordPress sites are always under attack by bots looking for signs of vulnerability. Even a small website is a juicy target. Fortunately, there are a number of easy ways to protect your site by making good security decisions.

We’ll go through some of the most common methods hackers use to get into WordPress sites through some entertaining (and sometimes scary) stories.

You’ll learn key security principles to help you make good decisions to detect intrusions, prevent them, and recover from a security event if you are ever compromised.

Our goal with the Sentree Cares Webinar Series is to provide the WordPress Community with outstanding educational content to help you learn and grow your business, blog, or nonprofit. WordPress is amazing and so flexible, that it’s possible to build your own website – for a blog, business, or nonprofit. But there’s a learning curve, too, and there are so many things you can do to always be improving your site.

This is another way that Sentree Hosting is giving back to the WordPress community.

Sentree Cares. It’s at the heart of what we do.
