Location: Room 1053
Format: General Lecture Session

Session description

This session serves to answer the most-asked question I get as a developer: "How can I keep my WordPress site secure?"

This session will walk you through three major levels of security: server-level, site-level and external. And it'll explain how they all work together to ensure that your site's defenses are bolstered against any incoming threats. Finally, the session will dispel any common misconceptions and pinpoint common weak spots in an unprotected system.
