ADDRESSING security risk
Reducing the security risk to WordPress websites can sometimes be as simple as making some key changes or improvements and maintaining your website.
Small business owners
Understanding the overall security risks of your website though can be difficult and this often results in nothing being done to address a sites security and maintenance, until the website is affected, damaged or content lost. Small business website owners can complete many tasks themselves but the difficulty in understanding which are the important tasks, the lack of access to premium software and the lack of time available to work on a site, can leave websites under protected and inadequately maintained, customer data at risk and business continuity vunerable.
Your website may be at risk of being compromised if it is not security checks and updates are not performed routinely. Failure to complete updates and address the need for some timely updates represents a major risk factors for WordPress websites.
Great sites don’t stay that way forever unless they are maintained and updated. The content you can see will often need updating or new content added. This will be for maintaining accuracy, appearance and search optimisation of your site.

Achieving and maintaining your websites ranking is a science in itself. One of the basics of maintaining a site involve adding new content, or fresh content it is also called, to keep or improve your search ranking. This new content could come in many forms, depending on the website type, but is traditionally in the form of blog post entries.
So dont forget the important maintenance task of adding fresh content and make sure its added routinely. Your web developer could assist with managing the automation of this process or set up your software for you to manage. If the content writing for the blog, is proving too difficult or you are struggling to find time they may be able to assist or find someone to prepare the new content.

Images can overload a site and make it slow with consequences for other aspects of a site. Receival of images to a site may not have been set up correctly and now the site is bloating. Email if hosted within the website can reach limits and cause a website to fail. Archiving or changes to hosting might be needed. Without action a website could deteriote or fail and affect your business.
Designs lose popularity and may need freshening up. Promotions come and go and are best removed from your site when they expire. Dates and content need removing or updating in a timely manner. You get the picture. Maintenance of a site is all about maintaining it as a working asset for your business.
