Each of our sessions are digitally broadcast live and feature 3 separate presenters each focusing on a specific aspect of some WordPress topic. Each presenter will have roughly 30-40 minutes allotted for instruction and 15 minutes allotted for Q&A at the end. This means that, typically, the session will run three hours start-to-finish.
About This Session
On Saturday, May 17, Dre Armeda, Jason Cosper, and Daniel Kanchev will teach you about the many ways and reasons an attacker may attack your site. Specifically, we’ll discuss what does, and does not work to improve your site’s security, how you can prevent malicious visitors from even accessing your site, and, ultimately, how to recover after an attack.
Hope is not a strategy. Learn from the experts and increase your site security.
This session will be broadcast live on May 17, starting at 1pm ET.
