Not Just for the Government: Using the NIST Framework to Secure WordPress

When setting up a WordPress website, it is easy to focus on the look and feel of the website, while overlooking the important aspect of security. This makes sense, because the security of a website is largely invisible until something goes wrong. Installing a cybersecurity plugin like Wordfence significantly reduces the chances of a successful attack on a WordPress site. What no software can fully protect is the human element. This is where cybersecurity models and frameworks come in. We discussed one cybersecurity model, the CIA Triad, a few months ago. There are other models and frameworks that each have their own strengths and weaknesses, depending on how they are implemented.
