    WordCamp Montreal 2018Speaker: Guillaume Hamel

    March 18, 2019 — Trop souvent, on associe la sécurité à l’utilisation d’un plugin (ex. iThemes Security, WordFence, etc) ou d’un service (ex : Sucuri, Cloudflare). Par contre, sans être mauvaises, ces options créent un faux sentiment de sécurité. Durant ma présentation, je présenterai les bonnes pratiques et différentes alternatives pour assurer la sécurité et l’intégrité de votre présence sur le Web. Que ce soit du petit blogue ou du site d’une PME en grande croissance, vous pourrez y trouver votre compte. Nous regarderons les différentes options technologiques existantes et tenterons de démystifier quelques mythes au passage.

    Adam Warner: Making Security Make Sense to Clients

    WordCamp Portland ME 2018Speaker: Adam Warner

    February 2, 2019 — As someone who builds WordPress websites for clients, you’ve probably learned that offering (or requiring) monthly maintenance contracts is smart business. It’s likely you’re including core software, plugin and theme updates as part of your maintenance plan, which ensures a steady income stream you can rely on and helps with your financial forecasting. But are you including website security as part of your project proposal and scope?

    The security of your clients’ websites is often not a priority or is left till the end of a project (or sale?) as an optional add-on for the client to consider after going live. The value of a strong website security posture can be difficult to explain to clients, but when put in the context of their business and possible loss of revenue, it can become an integral part of your offering that separates you from the rest.

    In this session, Adam will cover simple website security best practices that you can implement immediately for your own site and those of your clients. In addition, he’ll also offer advice and examples on how to best present the importance of website security during the proposal, scope, and maintenance package stages to your clients. Not only does this ensure your maintenance plans offer what every website needs, but also presents an additional revenue stream opportunity for your business.

  • Steve Schwartz: WordPress Security- beyond the plugins!

    Steve Schwartz: WordPress Security- beyond the plugins!

    WordCamp Atlanta 2018Speaker: Steve Schwartz

    January 24, 2019 — “You can’t just install a couple of security plugins and call it a day when it comes to safeguarding your WordPress website. Plugins are a great start. The door to your website now has a lock on it. But how about adding a dead bolt? A door chain? A peep hole? Titanium reinforcement? A pet dragon hiding inside?

    Just as you would add layers of security to protect your home and family, your WordPress security needs a multi layered approach. Come learn how to build a wall, a moat, and some additional lookout towers to keep the bad guys away from your castle. Oh, and dragons? We’ll talk about them too, if we have time.”

    January 21, 2019 — Haven’t you wished you could ask any question to an “expert” at WordCamp? Problem is that many talks have short Q&A sessions – and while we encourage speakers to visit the Happiness Bar after the talks, it’s still difficult to ask sometimes. Also there could be someone ELSE in the room that has a great answer, or would love to bond over the subject you’re interested in.
