WordPress Security

Can you do wordpress web sites? I hear that question almost every time I visit a client or potential client. The answer is of course yes; we have been doing wordpress web sites now for over 5 year. So many businesses are learning of the flexibility and ease of use of WordPress as a content management system. So companies like mine are frequently asked, “Can you do a wordpress web site for my company?”

So whats the big deal. Why are so many developers using wordpress for the development of websites? Well, there is a demand for it, it is fairly easy to setup, there 100,000 plus plugins that do so many things and its even more convenient for a client to use to update their own web site. This reduces cost to the business that is having the web site developed because they can maintain the site without paying a monthly maintenance fee or an hourly rate for changes to their web site. This is great for the business. The problem is wordpress is not secure. The people that write the plugins are not security experts so your plugins are vulnerable and have to be updated all the time. WordPress itself has to be updated as well. And if you don’t have the correct version of wordpress with the correct plugin then your site can brake. This is a constant on-going battle that never stops. The first time you don’t have everything updated and secured you will incur the wrath of the hacking gods. You will get hacked, it is only a matter of time….so what can you do to prevent the inevitable.

Well, first never get a web site developed in wordpress for e-commerce, second if you decided to proceed with a wordpress web or a wordpress web site for e-commerce make sure you use a third party PCI compliant plug-in that will protect your customers information. Also make sure you are not liable for the transactions if a breach does occur. Next, make sure you have a web developer that has experienced in wordpress that understand the risk and the fact that plug-ins must be updated on weekly schedules and maintained for the safety of your web site. They should also make sure to install and properly configure the following plugins.  Failure to do so will result in your site being compromised at some point…guaranteed.

Here are some recommended plug-ins:

Computer Hacking Liability – Are You At Risk?

Wednesday, December 19th, 2012

Presented by McNair Law Firm, P.A.

Please join us for the
InnoVision Forum:

Computer Hacking Liability – Are You At Risk?
What To Do To Avoid Data Breaches and Hacking and
What To Do If You are Hacked

From the US Government to the State of South Carolina, companies and organizations of all sizes are under attack from hackers. The threat of these attacks has escalated so that cyber security professionals admit it is almost impossible to achieve 100% prevention.  According to Verizon’s 2011 report, small and medium sized businesses, as well as governments and municipalities, are the main targets.  Please join us to discuss the legal liability associated with hacking for you and your company, leading edge prevention measures to avoid hacking, and what your obligations are in the event that a breach is suspected or discovered.  We will also discuss the role of the financial institution in these circumstances.

PANEL INCLUDES:

Douglas W. Kim
Attorney
McNair Law Firm, P.A.

 

  • Doug will discuss the current laws concerning security requirements including the Red Flag Rules, PCI Compliance, South Carolina specific laws and recent cases involving hacking.  His discussion will include the recent case where a bank was required to repay monies lost to a customer due to hackers ($345,000.00).
