Thanks for stopping by. I’m Kathy Zant, and this is my home on the web.
I currently work for a WordPress-focused security firm, Defiant. We make Wordfence, the plugin helping WordPress site owners thwart hackers on over 3 million websites worldwide. I help our agency and enterprise customers understand their security posture and make good security decisions.
I often speak at WordCamps, WordPress meetups, and perform other corporate trainings. I am in the midst of teaching some security webinars for the SBDC at Rutgers.
I am a cohost on Wordfence’s Think Like a Hacker podcast if you want to hear what I think about WordPress, security, and innovation. I really enjoy these weekly chats.
I’ve been a user of WordPress for well over 10 years, and only recently I’ve begun being active in the WordPress community. I helped out at WordCamp Phoenix. That was epic. You can read my thoughts here.
On April 27-28, I’ll be visiting with WordPress users at WordCamp Orange County at the Wordfence sponsor table. We have the best swag ever.
I spoke about Evaluating WordPress Plugins at WordCamp Miami, WordCamp Sacramento and WordCamp Seattle last fall. My slides and notes from the presentation are now available.

Need a speaker? I love talking about WordPress, publishing online, security, hacking, and innovation.
