Episode 49 – Web Security | With Tim Nash

Why would anyone want to hack my website? This was one of the questions we asked WordPress Platform Lead and Developer Advocate for 34SP.com, Tim Nash. We talked about what the risks are, who’s responsibility web security should be and what we can do to build more secure sites.

Tim gave us two security focused Toolstars. Visualping and Versionista monitor sites for changes. They can be used to ensure your sites haven’t been tampered with.

For our Jukebox picks, Tim chose Postmodern Jukebox’s cover of Meghan Trainor’s ‘All About That Bass’. I Chose ‘Gathers In Puddles’ by Origamibiro, who also very kindly lets us use one of his track as our ‘theme tune’. Ben had no pick this week… bad Ben! They’ll be added to the Relative Paths Alt Playlist, or the Relative Paths Playlist as appropriate.

The music we use for various intro bits, stings and outro is ‘Vitreous Detachment’ by Origamibiro, used with kind permission.
