Hi, I've been hearing a lot about hacking and the potential security issues that can arise from having a WordPress blog. Therefore I'd like some advice on the tools, plug-ins and measures I need to install/undertake in order to keep my site as secure as possible.
One thing I wanted to find out about in particular is backing up. Is it necessary to back up via WP if your hosting company has a back up? I guess your hosting company cant actually replicate your info if it has all been erased. Correct?
