Security 101 Southern Illinois WordPress Meetup 03-12-2014 ! Michele L. Butcher @michele_buthcer michelebutcher.com
Why is security important?
You are NEVER 100% secure
How can I be more secure?
First things ﬁrst ALWAYS use complex passwords. ALWAYS! “password” is never a good password!
Never email passwords to anyone. Including yourself. Use something like LastPass to share passwords.
If the login has a Two-Factor authentication, use it!
Anti-virus Protect your unit!
Be conscious when using public WiFi.
Update! Update! Update!
Back up everything and back it up often. If you fear you might lose information, save it in more than one spot. Bitcasa, Carbonite, and external hard drives are great options of backing up data.
Never ever ever use admin as user name or password as password. Never!
ALWAYS change your database name from wp_ Let it be anything other than wp_ fdhsfjkhs_ is always good
Only give access to what the user needs access to. No more no less.
Better WordPress Security Shameful plug time… Soon to be known as iThemes Security To be released this month. Watch iThemes.com for details

Back up your site! ! Somewhere, anywhere, just have a backup copy.
If your unit or your website get hacked it is not the end of the world.
