    Some of the tips to secure your wordpress site:

    1. Always keep your wordpress site updated to the latest version.

    2. Remove the default admin username and replace it with something different.

    3. Update plugins regularly/remove unused plugins.

    4. Use plugins like All In One WP Security or BulletProof Security

    Keep platforms and scripts up-to-date: One of the best things you can do to protect your website is to make sure any platforms or scripts you’ve installed are up-to-date. Because many of these tools are created as open-source software programs, their code is easily available – both to good-intentioned developers and malicious hackers.

    Install security plugins, when possible: To enhance the security of your website once your platform and scripts are up-to-date, look into security plugins that actively prevent against hacking attempts.

    Lock down your directory and file permissions: All websites can be boiled down to a series of files and folders that are stored on your web hosting account. Besides containing all of the scripts and data needed to make your website work, each of these files and folders is assigned a set of permissions that controls who can read, write, and execute any given file or folder, relative to the user they are or the group to which they belong.

    Moving the wp-config.php out of the root WordPress directory is a good
    security measure, making it nearly impossible to potentially access this file from
    a web browser.

    WordPress looks for the wp-config file in the root directory first, and if it can’t find that file it
    looks in the parent directory. This happens automatically so no settings need to be changed for this to work.

    And of course make sure your WP is updated as well as plugins are.

    It may seem obvious, but ensuring you keep all software up to date is vital in keeping your site secure. This applies to both the server operating system and any software you may be running on your website such as a CMS or forum. When website security holes are found in software, hackers are quick to attempt to abuse them.

    If you are using a managed hosting solution then you don't need to worry so much about applying security updates for the operating system as the hosting company should take care of this.

    If you are using third-party software on your website such as a CMS or forum, you should ensure you are quick to apply any security patches. Most vendors have a mailing list or RSS feed detailing any website security issues. WordPress, Umbraco and many other CMSes notify you of available system updates when you log in.

    General security measures are already listed here on the WordPress website, kindly check: https://codex.wordpress.org/Hardening_WordPress

    Also, what kind of observation did you found in your website so that you have to look for the security feature?
    Does your server have Mod_security enabled?
