WordPress Security Update: How we're building the web's most secure platform and what you can do to help

We're only half way through it, but 2014 is already turning into a huge year for security vulnerabilities across the Internet -- and WordPress is no exception. The Heartbleed, Jetpack, and now HTTP cookie issues have seemed to come back-to-back, as WordPress has been hitting its stride in so many other places.

These vulnerabilities are very real, and the recovery has required a huge amount of community effort, but WordPress is safer and stronger than ever. This talk will cover the threats facing the WordPress ecosystem and the Internet today, how WordPress is combatting them, and what you can do to help protect our community.

Our speaker for the June SF WordPress Meetup is Brennen Byrne, the CEO of Clef.

About Brennen:

Brennen is the cofounder and CEO of Clef (getclef.com (http://getclef.com/)), a replacement for usernames and passwords online. His focus is on making advanced technology accessible to anyone and applying it to everyday use cases. The New York times described logging in with Clef as "magical" and it has grown to protect logins on more than 5,000 sites and $1 billion in assets around the web.

Brennen has spoken about security at WordCamps around the country like Phoenix, Boston, and Chicago, and has presented at other conferences alongside speakers like Neil deGrasse Tyson, Larry Summers, and Nassim Taleb.

Please don't arrive until 5.45pm at the earliest.
