Recently I spoke at WordCamp US 2015 on the topic WordPress Security — Navigating Today’s Website Threats!!
WordPress is one of the most recognized website CMS platform available in the market. Dominating over 25% of the websites on the web, and over 50% of the CMS-based websites, it’s no surprise that it’s the preferred technology by marketers, sales professionals, small and large business alike, and those intent on nefarious actions.
Security is not a singular event or action. It begins with good posture. Good posture is attained through appropriate risk management. Risk is appropriately managed through a layered defense model. The responsibility starts and stops with every website owner.
It’s popularity is often attributed to it’s flexibility, usability and of-course, community. With all the positive though, there is and continues to be an overarching security shadow that finds its way into every conversation. Fortunately, you can definitely achieve a secure deployment of WordPress or any other open-source CMS platform.
This presentation was defined to provide a current state of affairs when it comes to security within the WordPress ecosystem. Based on the latest trends and insights we’ve compiled at Sucuri.
