The Balancing Act: Maintaining a Secure, Usable Multisite Network

For a number of years, our department’s WordPress network, intended primarily for classroom use by faculty and students, was underused thanks in part to policies that prioritized security and risk-aversion over usability. In the fall of 2015, I worked with colleagues in academic technology and IT to develop a maintenance and communication plan that meets our campus’ high security standards, while also allowing us to remain flexible and responsive to those we support.

In this session, I will give some brief context, highlight the key points of our plan, discuss areas of future improvement and distribute an electronic copy that others can use as a guide for their own systems.
