Web Design North Devon SEO Barnstaple WordPress SecurityYour Website Security Matters!

So many websites leave themselves wide open to attack which can be avoided. However, most website owners think it won’t happen to themuntil it’s too late.

It’s not just large corporations that get hacked. No website is too small or too large to avoid being hit by security breaches. That intrusion could be just a playful breach where no damage is done, or it can be highly destructive which results in high fees to repair and lost business while the site is down.

Cyber-crime overtakes physical crime in the UK

According to recent statistics from the Office of National Statistics (ONS) cyber-crime overtook physical crime in the UK for the first time in 2015! (see article).

We’ve noticed a huge increase in requests from small businesses who’s sites have been hijacked to look like bank websites. The hackers harvest emails and passwords from people visiting the site believing it is their bank.

The most common question we get asked is “why would anyone want to hack my site as there’s nothing of value on it?“. The site itself isn’t the target, it’s a random attack. On most occasions, hackers just want the real estate – the space the website is on. They use the website to upload their own information. They can’t have a website registered to themselves which is acting illegally – so they use yours!

Recently, we surveyed websites in London and the South East and found over 4,200 vulnerable websites.

Get in Touch – BEFORE it happens!

It’s a frightening statistic but over 95% of the sites we view have no advanced security set up on them – as it’s not in the remit for most web developers to do this.

What Can We Do About It?

1. WordPress Professional Security Audit

You may have already tried to secure your site – or just believed that your web designer did all that for you. Either way, the chances are that your site is not secure, and is in fact, wide open to security breaches, software intrusions, and hackers.

New security issues are identified every day as software and plugins go out of date. It’s more than likely even a site which was once secure, is probably now full of security holes.

Our Team of WordPress Security Professionals will do a thorough security inspection of your website and forward a full Report detailing tasks and recommendations to make your site more secure.

Our Report will cover the following in detail:

  1. WordPress User Roles and Capabilities
  2. WordPress Database Privileges
  3. WordPress Core Files, Locations, and Permissions
  4. Installed WordPress Plugins
  5. Files, Scripts, and Directory Permissions
  6. Web Server Configuration and Permissions

We will cover all areas where your site can be accessed and report on any other issues which we flag. You will then have a clear understanding of what level of security your site currently has and know what to do to improve it.

If you wish us to run a WordPress Professional Security Audit on your website, it is £197.00. You will receive a detailed Security Report and then you can decide if you wish us to do further work on your site or do it yourself.

If you think your site has been compromised call on  01271 523 586 or use our Contact page and let us know what’s happening on your site.
