Very comprehensive course
Chris O'Connor does a fantastic job clearly explaining how to secure your Wordpress site: from installs and plug-ins, from back-ups to clean-ups, and even best practices for purchasing themes and plug-ins. This course is worth every cent.
There is a common misconception that viruses and malware are distributed by porn sites, gambling sites, or other sites of a dubious nature. But nothing could be further from the truth. It's small businesses, the personal blogger, the hobbyist. Basically, the sites you least expect to be spreading malware, and they are also the sites that least expect to get hacked - and usually the ones that are the least prepared for it when it actually happens.
It's a Numbers Game
WordPress is a great platform on which to build a web site, and it's estimated that it now powers around 25% of all web sites - and that makes it a target for hackers.
With a standard platform for the hackers to target they can try and infect tens of thousands of sites, and there is an excellent chance they will break into a significant percentage of them. For them it's just a numbers game. It's nothing personal against you.
You Probably Don't Even Know That Your Site Is ALREADY Infected!
Most of us have seen websites that have been defaced. The reality is that these are NOT the norm, because most people putting malware on your site DON'T want you to know it is there. Unlike the script kiddies who deface your site to show off to their friends, the REAL bad guys want to get as much use out of your site as they can, and are hoping to stay on it for as long as possible.
Chances are, completely unknown to you, your website could be being used for...
Before you know it your site is blacklisted by Google, and they are warning people not to visit your site because 'This site may harm your computer'. People stop visiting your site, customers find other (safer) places to meet their needs, and your business nosedives. Everything you worked so hard to build up could be lost virtually overnight and your reputation left in tatters.
Opening up your website and realising that someone else has broken in and used you, and your site, for their own ends leaves a sickening feeling in your stomach. It's a feeling of fear, dread, panic, and of being violated...
But It DOESN'T have To Be This Way! There Is A Solution...
...and the steps you need to take to avoid all of this DON'T require you to be a computer expert or a WordPress security guru. If you were able to get your WordPress site off the ground then you almost certainly have all the skills necessary to put in place everything recommended in this course, and if you are in any doubt then I make it really easy for you, taking you step by step through exactly what you need to do to make YOUR site as hackerproof as possible.
Just implement what you are shown in this course and you can sleep easy at night knowing that you have done everything possible to protect yourself, your customers, and your business.

We've covered quite a bit in this course, over a wide range of areas. Let's do a quick quiz to see how much you remember...
I've been building web sites since the mid/late 90's, and am the author of the book WordPress For All : How To Create A Website For Business Or Personal Use, Quickly & Easily - Whatever Your Skill Level. It is available available on Amazon for the Kindle, with a paperback version due to follow in the near future.
I've been using WordPress since it was first released, and prior to that, B2 (the software WordPress was forked from). I've built numerous websites both for myself and for clients, using HTML, WordPress, and Joomla. From the very first commercial web site I built (in the days before Google existed) I have made a point of building my sites with search engine optimisation in mind, and have had top ranking for many of my sites for some of the toughest keywords out there.
I'm a big fan of Twitter, and if you follow me on Twitter then make sure you let me know that you found me on Udemy and I'll be sure to follow you back.
