Details

This month we welcome back Tim Nash from our sponsor 34SP.com who has spoken twice here in the past, and always provides an entertaining and informative talk.

"Come to the Dark Side, we have cookies"

> Everyone should be a little bit worried about security of their site, and at conferences lots of security talks focus on practical steps people can take. In this talk Tim will flip the norms and instead focus on several real examples of sites being hacked but from the attackers perspective. We will see the whole attacks from the bad actors view identifying targets, analysing vulnerable sites, adding payload, exploiting in doing so showing how sites are infected, how some tools do prevent certain attacks and how clever and indeed not so clever bad actors can circumvent lots of hardening done.

> Each step we can analyse what could have been put in place to prevent and frustrate the attack and then look at how this can be implemented on your site.

Tim is the 34SP.com WordPress Platform Lead & Developer advocate. He is responsible for the management of the WordPress platform and keeping thousands of sites running fast and staying secure. He is also known to give the odd talk here and there and when he can blog and appear randomly on Youtube. Tims own site is timnash.co.uk and he writes about everything from security to home automation with a healthy dose of WordPress and humour.

We look forward to seeing you, having some good discussions and helping out with any WordPress problems you might be having.

*Parking*

There are free car parking spaces directly outside the building. The signs say that you can only park for 30 minutes but that's only until 7pm so if you arrive after 6.30 then you should be good!

Alternatively, there are often spaces along Gervis or Meyrick Road.

There are also various pay and displays in the area, the closest being Cotlands Road:
