February 26: Keeping Your WordPress Safe

Français ci-dessous.

Keeping Your WordPress SafeOur next event focuses on security!

Let’s face it: you never want to wake up one morning with your WordPress install hacked – or even worse, your clients’ sites.

Google flags your URL as malware. Your hosting company disables your account. Your email accounts end up on blacklists. Anything like this can put your reputation and your business in jeopardy – and that’s if you’re aware of it. A hacker can even take over a site without your knowledge!

Security is a crucial topic for every WordPress user. This event will feature of a presentation by Carl Alexander covering best practices around the configuration and maintenance of your WordPress site, followed by a “show and tell” segment. Come share your own best practices with the community. You might even learn a thing or two in the process!
