Talking security at DrupalCamp London 2018

Mike Davis
Lead Developer

We’re strong believers that contributing to open source and sharing what we’ve learnt benefits both our agency and the wider community. It’s one of the reasons we offer our team paid conference tickets and support for public speaking.

In particular, we've been key supporters of the European Drupal community since 2007, with the largest team of Acquia certified developers in Europe. We're proud to be in the top 30 of companies contributing to the project globally.

On 3rd March 2018, I’ll be speaking at DrupalCamp London – an event which our own Tim Deeson helped co-found in 2013. It brings together Drupal developers of all levels and from all over Europe to engage in learning and discussion about the project.

Effortless security updates for your Drupal sites.

The title of my session is Warden - Helping Drupal Agencies Sleep at Night. It’s critical to keep your sites up to date with the latest security releases. But it’s a time consuming task to check each site manually. We built Warden to solve this problem.

Warden is an open source solution that allows in-house development teams and agencies to keep track of the status of multiple Drupal sites hosted on different platforms. I’ll explain how Warden makes managing the security of all your sites much more manageable.

This session is for you if you:

  • have a large number of sites hosted with multiple hosting companies that you need to keep track of.
  • have sites that may need security updates but you don’t have the time to investigate.
  • wish there was a central dashboard reporting which of your sites needed security updates applied.

I’ll demonstrate how Warden works and show you how easy it is to see which sites need security updates, saving your team time to focus on other important work. I’ll also discuss best practice for site security and the importance of making sure that all your developers are aware of it.
