7:15 - This Month's Topic A: WP Hacked!!! Don't be that guy!
Our world has come to expect computer systems to be hacked and for data to be stolen. Does it really have to be like this? Isn’t there anything that we can do to lessen or stop these attacks? Specifically, what can the owner or developer of a WordPress site do?
In this two-part discussion, we will start by looking at examples of some notorious hacks from an anatomical view, and identify, undeniably what the root causes were and what types of measures we can take to defend our sites against similar intrusions. Then, we'll turn our attention to specific techniques we can follow to "harden" the security of WordPress sites and minimize our exposure to would-be hackers.
The first part of the discussion will be led by Candy Alexander, a computer systems security expert and a consultant with Manchester-based WWPASS Corp., a company offering authentication solutions. The second part will be led by Jonathan May, President of YourPresenceOnTheWeb.com, a NH-based e-Marketing consultancy specializing in WordPress website design, development and training.
