Stop Those Hackers! Security for your WordPress Website
Learn how you can greatly increase the security of your website - even if you are not an expert developer! Todd Broadbent, Senior Web Developer for the School of Media and Communication at Temple University, will give a talk packed with solid, usable information that you can put to work on your website. Preventing hacking attempts is a part of life if you manage a website today. At the end of September, Facebook announced a breach that compromised information for some 50 million users. Wordpress is not immune, but you can employ a full security and disaster recovery plan that will see you through any successful hacking attempt or block them entirely. Todd will present the security methods he has employed both at Temple University and his own freelance business, including security plugins, encryption, role management, backups and efficient passwords. With the right tools, you can build rock solid security methods to prevent or limit productivity loss due to intrusion, virtually for free.
