WordPress for eCommerce – Security Requirements

 

WordPress popularity as a website platform also extends to its eCommerce capability via the WooCommerce extension. However due to this worldwide appeal it’s also quite regularly targeted by hackers and from an eCommerce perspective, there are a number of steps to be taken to secure your WordPress site.
We’ve put together a quick rundown of the risks and solutions in the article below.

 

Security Controls

Some actions you can take as a website administer to improve your security level-

a) Trusted Sources– Trusted sources include the WordPress.org plugin directory. Do not get plugins/themes from the sources that are not trusted.

b) Limit Access–  Reduce the administrative access to minimum on your website.

c) Functional Isolation– Avoid having a number of diverse web applications on a single hosting account.

d)  Backups– Backups should be occasionally verified to make sure that the website can restore if damaged.

e) Stay Up-to-Date–  Stay updated including plugins and themes.

f) Security Updates and News– WordPress is no different from others in respect to security vulnerabilities. To stay current, we recommend subscribing to the vulnerability database maintained by WPVulnDB.com.

Secure Your Working Environment

It is important to make sure that the local computer, browser and routers are free of viruses, malware and spyware. Tools like no-script (or disabling javascript/flash/java) in the browser and VPN can be considered while encrypting online communication when moving between locations and using different Wi-Fi hotspots.
