Hi, I'm Chuck
Learn about who I am, why I'm doing this, and why your organization should be taking its WordPress website security to new heights.
Who I am
I live in Portland, Oregon, and own ILLUSIO. I’m the Nonprofit WordPress Security Expert who helps women-led communications teams free up their time and lock down WordPress from getting hacked.
I believe in educating nonprofit leaders about how security should be a serious priority for their organization so they have awareness and are empowered to avoid becoming victims of cybercrime.
What I write about
I frequently share my cybercrime best practices, mistakes to avoid making with WordPress, and security news on LinkedIn. My blog posts also feature WordPress resources and cybersecurity tips for nonprofit leaders.
I enjoy contributing to nonprofit leadership and technology blogs: Nonprofit Tech for Good and NonProfit PRO.
They offer useful, easy-to-understand articles on fundraising, marketing, and social media.
Why I'm doing this
A couple of years ago, one of my nonprofit clients had their WordPress website hacked (screenshot above). The home page was replaced, we couldn’t log in, and the pages were missing.
We spent a lot of time and energy fixing a problem that never really went away because of the type of web hosting they used.
I see organizations making a thinking mistake that because you’re a small nonprofit, you have nothing valuable for hackers to steal.
Hackers don’t discriminate. Email phishing, data breaches, and ransomware are on the rise for nonprofits of all sizes worldwide.
I want to empower you to avoid becoming another victim of cybercrime.
