Details

Following on from last month's popular talk on GDPR, this time around we're delighted to welcome Tim Nash as our guest speaker. He will be delivering his talk on 'Practical WordPress Security', giving plenty of tips we can all implement to ensure our WordPress sites are as safe as possible.

Tim works for 34SP and is a very well known member of the WordPress community as well as being a co-organiser of the WordPress Leeds user group (the oldest in the country). He is also an established speaker at WordCamps and tech conferences both in the UK and abroad.

Practical WordPress Security.
Tim Nash - @tnash

We have all been to the scary WordPress security talk where Tim or someone else frightens you to death, but it's not too dire, in those talks there is a theme beyond despair and that’s 'every little helps'.

So this talk is low on scary tales and high on simple practical tips to improve your site's security.

On their own they might not be the silver bullet, but they all add up. Tim will guide you through things anyone of any ability level can implement to improve their site's security.

This will be a great opportunity for people who are interested in WordPress but have concerns around the security/stability of a WordPress site. If you are already familiar then I'm sure you'll have friends/colleagues who are new to WordPress so feel free to bring them along!

There will be a time for Q&As afterwards, and we'll round off the evening with some general updates specific to our group (possibly with a little surprise...)

Doors open at 6.00pm for a 6.30pm start and there will be refreshments provided by our lovely sponsors, Illustrate Digital.
