From Shaun Quarton at Torque Magazine

  • Backup your site
  • Keep everything updated (WordPress plus themes and plugins — even the ones that aren’t in use.)
  • Hide your WordPress version
  • Choose secure passwords
  • Use secure usernames too (do not use “Admin”)
  • Move you login page
  • Hide your username (your login name)
  • Limit login attempts
  • Use a secure host
  • Disable the theme and plugin editors
  • Add and configure one or more security plugins

These are all great tips.  Go check out Shaun’s post.  I’m always happy to answer questions as well.
