This month’s Deep Dive Discussion will focus on Securing Your WordPress Site. The growing popularity of the WordPress CMS has unfortunately increased its attractiveness to Hackers. The good news for WordPress users is that WordPress Developer community is producing tools and process that non-programmers can use to protect their sites from mischief.

Nick Batik will take you through the mind and methods of a hacker, the most common mistakes made in installing and maintaining your WordPress site, and then discuss a series of easy and common sense steps to make your WordPress safe and secure.

The goal of this Deep Dive Discussion is to let non-programmers know it is neither hard or scary to protect your WordPress site. Our discussion will cover general security best practices, and some suggestions for site backup, and disaster recovery tools. Please come ready to discuss your security related questions and concerns.

Toyin Akinmusuru will once again host the Deep Dive Discussion at HUBAustin coworking space. We look forward to seeing you there.
