    Great presentation! Jon gave a very thorough and well-organized survey of how to keep a Wordpress install as safe as possible. I'm way less terrified. Thanks, Jon!

      Thanks! I was a little worried I didn't have enough to cover, but it seemed to pan out well. I am definitely thinking about putting together a server / hosting meetup in the future! Thanks for coming out today!
