As digital creators using WordPress, we have an empowering foundation available to not only create security for ourselves, but also for those we connect with. Though the times might be uncertain, our capabilities and tools aren’t. By staying focused on our purpose as creators, we can find our way to thrive and stay secure no matter what is happening around us.

Whether you were swamped with client work and a corner had to be cut, or you’re stretched so thinly trying to wear every hat that something fell through the cracks, we’ve all encountered mistakes we made ourselves. While they’re mostly all forgivable, it becomes a bit of a different issue when a mistake leads to a security concern.

    Mikey Veenstra: What The Hack? Fortifying Your Security by Understanding Your Adversary

    WordCamp Seattle 2018Speaker: Mikey Veenstra

    December 19, 2019 — Malicious activity is an unfortunate reality when maintaining a web presence today. Most people involved in the web industry know someone who encountered the aftermath of a disruptive attack–if they haven’t themselves. Because of this, awareness of security best practices is at an all-time high. To many, though, it may not be clear exactly why these measures are important.

    To remedy that, we’ll be taking a practical look at what’s actually happening when a website gets attacked, as well as discussing the hows and whys along the way. From understanding why small sites still get hacked, to why password reuse is really as bad as everyone says, we’ll explore the rationale behind the security principles you’re always being told to follow.
