The Hacker Mindset

WordCamp Boston, Thank you!

This might have been my most fun talk yet, and I owe it all to the audience. I had a great time! Thanks for the hospitality!

Here are my slides. And I promised some other links to resources during questions, here’s hoping I remember them.

Chris Teitzel’s interview on Think Like a Hacker, episode 31.

Have I Been Pwned.

1Password. Leverages Have I Been Pwned and checks for your passwords in breaches. Also has 2FA time-based one time codes in the interface.

Last Pass. Another good password manager. Has a stand-alone 2FA app that can be used instead of Google Authenticator.

The Most Expensive Lesson of My Life. Why you need to avoid SMS 2FA.

Our banks need to get with the program. You can use this site to check for 2FA services.

Wordfence: the plugin including the firewall and malware scanner.

Wordfence Login Security: the standalone plugin that you can use for 2FA.

Site Security Audit: download the report and audit your site’s security.
