    I've done all the expected, routine plugins but I figure some of you high rollers add additional measures. Anyone care to share? ;)

    Thanks....

    If you have too many WP sites or multiple high traffic sites, it's best to hire a web developer on a part-time basis. You can have them to take daily or weekly backups of your sites and take care of small tweaks here and there. It shouldn't cost you much. In this way, you'll stop worrying about the security part and start dedicating more time to growing your site.

    Thanks.
