In this video from WordCamp Chicago, Dre talks about security when working with WordPress. He starts from securing your local computer, using safe passwords and the good ways to securely connect to the Internet and WordPress. Dre then mentions a great deal of techniques on making your WordPress installation more secure, file permissions, SSL certificates, checking your web hosting providers and more.

If you’re running a website on WordPress and especially if you’re making a living out of it (brand or business), then make sure you watch Dre’s presentation before you get into any trouble. And of course, “update, update, update”!
