DrupalCamp MI: Secure Your Site

The 2012 Data Breach Investigations Study by Verizon shows that in 855 data breaches they examined, 71 percent occurred in businesses with fewer than 100 employees.

When I read this finding I was reminded of all the sites I’d seen successfully breached over the past several years. The sites of friends. The sites of non-profits. The sites I was asked to take a look at.

This inspired me to present at DrupalCamp MI on the topic of security. In the 45 minute time slot I could only cover a fraction of the material I would like to have. For example, I didn’t talk about social engineering types of issues. I hope someone presents on that soon.

The slides for this presentation are available on Speaker Deck and Slideshare.

One thing I came to realize is that I’d like to see more sessions and trainings at future DrupalCons and DrupalCamps. It’s a good time to raise awareness and teach people practical methods and tools to use in this space.
