Whenever you talk about WordPress, someone brings up WordPress security. Your boss is going to bring it up, your clients are going to bring it up, and there’s a decent chance you’ve had at least one night’s sleep ruined thinking about it. It’s one of those things that makes you feel paranoid: Am I doing enough? Do I have a compromised site and not even know it?
Paul says that as an owner of a WordPress site, it is your responsibility to be paranoid about security. He is the lead programmer for the Division of Marketing and Communications at the University of Missouri. He presented at WPCampus 2016 and at HighEdWeb 2016 on the topic "Access Denied: Keeping Yourself off an Attacker's Radar". At HighEdWeb, he received the highly-coveted "Red Stapler Award" for best presentation of the conference.
