After organising it last year and delivered a talk about getting started with plugin development, this year I've been to WordCamp Torino 2018 to talk about the process to secure web applications based on WordPress.
In 2000, the internationally renowned security technologist Bruce Schneier wrote: “Security is a process, not a product”. In the same essay, he wondered: “Will we ever learn?”. Apparently not.
How many times have you considered your WordPress application security only once completed? How many times have you installed a security plugin and thought it was enough? Securing a web application doesn’t mean installing a plugin just before deployment. Not at all.
I’m very passionate about security and I’d like to share my thoughts with you. My focus will be the security awareness related to web applications. Is WordPress secure? I will answer this question very clearly. And you’re not gonna like it!
