This talk is designed to break down website security at it’s most fundamental level and understand that there is no 100% solution out there, there never will be. Security is about technology, processes, and people, and we need to know how to mitigate risk in these areas.
The talk will cover:
Hosting and how it plays a role in website security
Understanding what a Firewall actually protects
Dispelling the myth of “why would anyone hack me?”
Different types of online threats (external and internal)
WordPress security essentials (Passwords, updates, user roles, backups, etc.)
DIY tools to help mitigate risk and improve your online posture
Resources for staying informed
If you own or manage a website, whether it’s an ecommerce store, a blog, or just a simple marketing site, you need to know how to keep it protected and become a responsible steward of the world wide web!
