If you are currently running a WordPress website, without focusing on keeping your site code secure, you may be exposed to some serious problems.
It’s very important to know that WordPress security is not automatic.
If you check the WordPress Attack Report (October 2017) provided by Wordfence, you will certainly start thinking of ways to protect your WordPress blog/site. Also keep in mind that, in December 2017, WordPress websites were under highest brute force attack.
2018 is the time for a consistent focus on digital protection.
