Joseph Herbrandson Speaker Interview


Joseph Herbrandson

After switching out of a sales career, I began working with WordPress websites and creating for small businesses and local professionals. I have been doing so for over 5 years now, specializing in secure websites since my very first customer came to me after having a security incident.

Now I work for, an industry leader in website security and malware detection, removal and prevention. I work with customers everyday (many of them WordPress users) that have been hacked or infected, and work to re-mediate their security issues and implement a solution to prevent any further infections or attacks.

Why do you use WordPress?

The simplicity of its power and reach makes it one of the most versatile platforms around. It’s easy use, fix, and it’s supported by one of the most dedicated teams in the open-source community.

When and how did you start using WordPress?

Several years ago, after repeatedly fixing a customer’s old html site, I decided to take the plunge into WordPress and never looked back.

What would you tell someone to convince them to attend a WordCamp?

The collaboration and talent that you see at WordCamps is unmatched in other communities. WordCamps are low cost, highly informative, and are guaranteed to motivate you whatever your goals are.

What is your favorite part of WordCamps?

I always learn something new at WordCamps, so my favorite part is finding the newest piece of knowledge that I can take home with me.

What has been your biggest WordPress related accomplishment to date?

As far as website remediation and malware cleanup goes, I recently worked on and completed my five-thousandth infected or attacked website. WordPress made up the vast majority of these.
