As part of ongoing efforts to better protect websites running WordPress, this week SiteLock implemented a new feature exclusively for our WordPress customers, called SiteLock Platform Scan for WordPress.

This weekend I took my first ever trip to Canada for WordCamp Vancouver. This one-day WordCamp took place at the downtown campus of British Columbia Institute of Technology. Among the city skyscrapers, mountain peaks could be seen soaring up in practically every direction. A beautiful city, for sure.
It was held at the Columbus State Conference Center. This turned out to be the perfect location. The main hall and the breakout rooms were all close enough together but emptied into another main room allowing attendees a chance to meet and interact.

A special thank you to Yvonne Conway-Williams for her time and participation in the interview for this article.
At a recent WordCamp, I met Yvonne Conway-Williams, a social media marketing expert and front-end web developer. She approached our sponsor booth inquiring about website security. That’s when she said; “I wish I had found SiteLock two years earlier.” Struck by the comment, I asked her what had happened. Conway-Williams shared that on January 30, 2015, she and her husband returned home from a long day to find her client’s website, a local car club, defaced. Instead of her client’s homepage, the website featured a front page promoting and recruiting for ISIS, the terrorist organization.
