SQL injection- what security measures should a wordpress designer take?

I'd like to know what security measures should a beginner wordpress designer take in order to secure their site against attacks such as SQL injection and bruteforce attacks? Is iThemes plugin sufficient in addressing all potential hacking threats?

you should first complete your SQL and PHP courses. then go on OWASP website and learn about SQLi. They got courses, and a hack training application, so you can test your own apps

- check as much as possible user input (intval() for int, sanitize strings if possible, regex, etc) - use prepared statements - don't forget about XSS
