Securing WordPress

Tonight I’m presenting to the Ottawa OWASP Meetup about Securing WordPress. Although I expect this group to be more knowledgable about common security vulnerabilities than those at WordPress specific events, I thought it would be a good idea to give a lesson in “The WordPress way” of writing secure code, as well as giving a summary on the common procedures taken to secure a WordPress installation.

The slides from the presentation are here:

Here are a few links relevant to the talk:
  1. Data Validation (WordPress Codex)
  2. Nonces
  3. Hardening WordPress
  4. Clef – Two Factor Authentication Plugin
  5. iThemes Security Plugin
  6. WordFence Security Plugin
