Securing WordPress

I have written about various ways to help secure your website before. Backup of your site is probably the most important of all the things you can do to protect your site.  But there are some things you can do to make it more difficult for hackers (especially “script kiddies”) to damage or hijack your WP site.

The first video is a “backup” of a presentation that I plan to give to the North Texas PC Users Group on Saturday, April 30th, 2016 (next Saturday as I write this). The reason for the backup is that I will be presenting remotely using a collaboration tool called Zoom. While I have used Zoom before (and I have a pro account), the meeting is being held in a new location, so there is always the possibility that something might not work. The folks there can view this presentation if I can’t do it live.

If everything does go to plan, I will be doing a Q&A session after the presentation.

UPDATE: Here is the presentation I did for the group on Saturday, April 30th, 2016. Everything went more-or-less to plan, with the help of Diane, who ran the Zoom client at the meeting location. This presentation is pretty much the same as the first video, with the addition of a Q&A session.

Looks like next meeting, I get to do a presentation on how to find, hire, and manage a Virtual Assistant. Stay tuned!
