The cold hard truth is, most WordPress websites are hacked due to owner negligence. It’s usually not on purpose, though. Most new or DIY website owners don’t understand how important website security really is. WordPress website security is an on-going task that needs to be evaluated regularly. If you don’t manage your own website security, you need to hire someone to do it for you.
Unfortunately, many people let their websites become hacked over and over again because they don’t take action. As a result, it ends up costing more time and money. Moreover, it can negatively affect and infect your website visitors and your business reputation.
