WordPress security whitepaper
The WordPress.org website now includes a WordPress security whitepaper, donated by WordPress.com VIP. It’s sparse in its current form, but it’s a great start.
Why does this matter? Well, a whitepaper from the official project is a great tool for answering WordPress security concerns when pitching large or bureaucratic organizations that often have a lot of hoops to jump through for procurement.
The whitepaper makes it easy to point to the WordPress.org website itself to offer up both advice and legitimate information for ensuring the security of WordPress. I look forward to seeing this document fleshed out, and perhaps additional (more in-depth) resources can be built out around it to further support the points provided.
