WordCamp Minneapolis / St. Paul 2017 – Double the Fun

I’ve just returned from WordCamp Minneapolis / St. Paul, and what a camp it was! This year’s event was held at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs and Hanson Hall buildings at the University of Minnesota West Bank.

An impressive 450 attendees descended on the Twin Cities to learn and share all things WordPress. If you look close at the image below, you’ll see two planes in addition to the one I was on, all landing in Minneapolis. I’d like to think there were some other excited WordCampers coming in at the same time as my own flight.

SiteLock was among the 450 attendees, and we also  sponsored the event. We were there in full force with copious amounts of swag and a $200 Amazon gift card for our raffle.

SiteLock Security By Obscurity

Security by Obscurity [Infographic – Updated Q2 2017]

Many small business owners don’t realize their websites are targeted by cybercriminals. As a result, they may not have proper security in place to protect their sites in the event of a malicious cyberattack. Instead, they rely on “security by obscurity,” which implies that the less popular and attention grabbing the website, the less likely it is to be compromised.

In reality, there’s no such thing as “too small to hack.” Any business that has a website, regardless of number of features or amount of traffic, will always be at risk of cyber threats. Read our infographic to learn more.

rnc data breach web security best practices

The RNC Data Breach: Pitfalls of Neglecting Web Security Best Practices

In a recent security report, researchers revealed an unsecured archive of US voter data collected by Deep Root Analytics, a data firm connected to the Republican National Convention (RNC). The exposed data — which included full names, addresses, and phone numbers of 198 million registered voters — was uncovered by a security researcher in an internet-accessible database with no password protection or any other security measures. The database has been secured at the time of this writing, but it remains unclear how long this data was exposed to the internet.

It may be easy to assume exposures of this nature are an inevitability. After all, a data analytics firm associated with a major political party sounds like a clear target for bad actors. However, the data was discovered by a researcher performing unrelated searches through Amazon’s S3 infrastructure for any unprotected data, not targeted attacks against Deep Root Analytics or even voter data in particular. This fact underscores a critical necessity of the Internet: prioritize the security of your data at all stages of its life cycle. Your data needs to be secure where it’s stored, during network transit, and when it’s in the hands of third parties. This data leak in particular was the result of the RNC failing to properly ensure the security of their data in the hands of a third party contractor.
