    WordCamp Seattle 2014Speaker: Brennen Byrne

    August 10, 2014 &#8212 “The weakest link in the security of anything you do online is your password. It’s the key to your site, your email, your social networking accounts or any other online service you use.

It’s easy to recommend better passwords, but this talk covers the technology that is changing how the password battle is being waged. Background on botnets, two-factor authentication, SSL, and password rot will accompany actionable advice any user can follow to secure their WordPress site.
