WordCamp Montreal is only two days away! We’re excited to bring you a new speaker spotlight series this year!

Our next spotlight is Danielle Guérin!

Danielle is a virtual assistant since 2002. She’s passionate about WordPress and web marketing and started her love affair with the web in 1999. Since then, Danielle has repaired and recovered a large number of WordPress sites that were hacked. Since then she has developed an expertise in WordPress security.

Danielle will be giving a talk titled Votre site WordPress est-il bien protégé?.

What is your favorite improvement to WordPress this past year?

I like the simple things in life. The “Drag and Drop uploader” and the new toolbar have simplified adding content for my clients and me.

Why did you decide to speak at WordCamp Montreal?

I’ve had the privilege to attend WordCamp Montreal and profit from the knowledge shared by the experts. I wanted to contribute as well by sharing this past year’s learning and the importance of protecting our WordPress installations.

What is your talk going to be about?

“Votre site WordPress est-il bien protégé?” is a presentation that came to me after reinstalling client websites that were hacked. It’s a terrible feeling to get on Internet and discover that the site has vanished and I don’t wish this to anybody. There are some simple precautions to take, some code to modify and plugins that can protect your site and/or at least make it easier to get back online.

What is the one thing you want people to walk away with from your talk?

I want the attendees to remember that it is important to protect their site and that there are some basic precautions to take. They will leave my presentation with tips and tricks to better protect their site and their clients’.

Who in the WordPress community inspires you? Who do you follow?

Since I started using WordPress, I follow thewpchick.com and Diane Bourque. … and many more on Twitter.

What new feature would you like to see in the future?

I honestly don’t know. Each time I needed a new function, I searched for the plugin that would make it possible. However, with each major WordPress update, there was always a surprise for me. 🙂
