Details

WordPress is possibly the most popular website software on the planet, and yet that popularity attracts an unfortunate number of nefarious hackers and spammers.

Join us for a presentation geared towards all levels of WordPress user, from hobbyist to developer. We'll demystify common types of security vulnerabilities, and how to mitigate them.

You've seen terms like XSS, SQL Injection, Remote Code Execution, and Privilege Escalation. Learn how they can impact your sites, and how to protect against them.

This talk will cover everything from basic password security and first steps for all users, through common enterprise-level protection services.
