WordCamp Video Highlight 2017/06/02

Website security is something that I have been paying a lot of attention to the last few months. Not because a website that I own was attacked, just because I believe it is a good practice or habit to get into.

Sarah C. Hines: WP Security – That Boring Thing Until it Matters

At WordCamp Portland 2017, Sarah talks about the fact that WordPress is one of the most used content management systems in the world. Which also, inconveniently, makes it one of the most-targeted CMS’ for hackers. You know you should keep WordPress core, plugins, and themes up-to-date, but what else can you do to protect your system?

Matthias Kurz: Absicherung von WordPress durch Zwei-Faktor-Authentifizierung mit Security-Keys

From WordCamp Berlin 2017 – Noch immer ist das WordPress-Login eines der größten Einfallstore einer WordPress-Installation. Dies ist in den meisten Fällen auf unsichere Passwörter zurückzuführen, gerade wenn mehrere Benutzer Zugang zu einer Instanz haben oder wenn der / die Administrationsaccount(s) von mehreren Menschen verwendet wird.

Adam W. Warner: WordPress Security for Beginners – Simple Steps to Build Your Master Plan

And from WordCamp Louisville 2016, Adam has this for WordPress beginners and users.

Security can seem intimidating and complex for many of us, but we shouldn’t (can’t) let that stop us from making sure we’re doing everything we can to secure our WordPress sites. After all, our websites are often part of our livelihood.

WordCamp Video Highlight 2016/11/25

Before I get to the video highlights this week, I wanted to put out a call to action.

While searching for videos to highlight I came across the fact that there are only 109 videos from WordPress Meetups. I took a quick look at Meetup.com and found out that there are over 1,100 WordPress Meetup groups with 376,000 members. I know it can be inconvenient to setup a video camera to record a meeting but I think that these would be a fantastic addition to WordPress TV. You can upload WordPress related videos on the WordPress TV Submit Page.

Now….on to the videos!
