Securing WordPress: A 32-Step Checklist
With all of the above scary stuff in mind, I want to make sure that you’re armed with all the knowledge you can get to fully secure your WordPress website.

The second part goes into advanced measures for WordPress security for those who are really paranoid about security. This is for admins who want to lock the door, put a chain around the door, and put a padlock on it. And then a padlock on the padlock.
