Security Hardening of WordPress – OWASP

For each WordPress site launch, Sandbox has documentation used by our team (or our clients) to support the installation process of the CMS and to harden (secure) the hosting environment. While completing this process, our team members are responsible for completing the associated Deployment and Hardening Checklist, which ensures our team is consistently applying security best practices and locking down potential vulnerabilities. The WordPress hardening checklist includes meeting implementation guidelines defined in the OWASP (Open Web Application Security Project) for WordPress.
