Security Risks and Smart Configuration: Securing Your Drupal Site

Drupal is a powerful tool that can be configured many ways, sometimes insecurely. Knowing attack vectors against your site and how to prevent them is important for everyone building a Drupal site. In this session, aimed at site-administrators, we’ll discuss some vulnerabilities, proper configuration, and what you can do to maintain your site’s security.

Topics include:

  • Seeing and understanding the vulnerability risks
  • Drupal defaults and why you should care
  • Trusting site visitors
  • How to recover from attack

Attendees will receive a better understanding of web security and the importance of a strong security process. The session covers a broad set of topics and is designed to provide a foundational, yet functional, introduction to Drupal security.
