Hi @gnfb, I always add the Limit Login Attempts plugin (https://wordpress.org/plugins/limit-login-attempts/) and the Sucuri Malware Scanner (https://wordpress.org/plugins/sucuri-scanner/). And another one I only learnt of recently is the the HC Custom WP-Admin URL plugin (https://wordpress.org/plugins/hc-custom-wp-admin-url/) which I think is a smart thing to do as well. Not a security plugin, but I always install the WordPress SEO plugin too (https://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-seo/).
