securityIt's hard to think of a more important topic than keeping your site safe and secure.

So, we're pleased to say that our new Joomla security class is now live, and it is freely available for the public.

In this class we show you how to keep your Joomla site and extensions up-to-date. We also show you how to take backups with Akeeba Backup and explain how to restore your site from those backups. We then cover the Admin Tools extension which provides numerous extra security features.

Over time we aim to build out class, adding sessions on the Secure Live extension, working with SSL certficiates and more.

Here's the syllabus for the class.
