City, University London

Passwords, Security and Drupal; past, present and future.

Session details

Passwords (still) represent a significant aspect of online security, and one which all too often turns out to be a weak link in the chain. This session covers how passwords are handled in Drupal (and how this has changed over the years). We’ll look at the latest guidelines and best practices for passwords and how modern Drupal sites can implement these. We’ll also consider how bad actors leverage and abuse passwords, and how Drupal can protect against these attacks. Finally we’ll take a look towards a utopian world beyond passwords.

Drupal apprentices

The best people to train new developers are developers

The Drupal Apprenticeship Scheme will be running a London intake in March. If you are interested in hiring an apprentice or know someone who would benefit from the scheme please get in touch via the link below.

  • Created and run by experienced developers
  • Teaches core skills and best practice
  • Extensive support for businesses and teams

We are also really keen to hear from people who might be interested in mentoring, training and helping us to develop and review training materials to make sure they stay absolutely current and relevant.
