About This Class

  1. Is your WordPress Website secure?
  2. Can your users trust your website with sensitive data?

A while back, entrepreneurs with a WordPress blog didn't worry about questions like this because a blog was just a blog. Today, nothing can be further from the truth. A secure website is key in keeping your users engaged. It's all about trust.

  • I'm not giving away any info unless the website is secure!

You want to avoid thoughts like this going through your users minds...

You need that padlock!

Internet Entrepreneur

I love learning new stuff and that makes me a life-long learner.

I started with IT Engineering and a solid career in IT and Project Management.

I became an Internet Entrepreneur and my goal is to help people any way ...
