I have been focused on WordPress websites and specializing in security ever since my first freelance customer came to me with a security incident, and a hacked website. Now I work for Sucuri.net, an industry leader in website security and malware detection, removal, and prevention. I help customers everyday (many of them WordPress users) that have been hacked or infected, and work on remediating their security issue to implement a solution to prevent any further infection.

Anthony D Paul
By day, I’m a user experience researcher, designer, and prototyper at EightShapes. By night, you’ll find me spread across the DC and Baltimore meetup scenes—notably at events for UX, accessibility, and a variety of open source development projects. I’ve lived and worked in the DC/Baltimore corridor for nearly a decade, offering strategic, design, and full-stack development skills to clients large and small, spanning government, non-profit, and commercial. I’d tell you about my cool side projects, or divulge something funny from my past, but these days the Internet of things does a better job of curating our embarrassing moments; find me anywhere by Googling “anthonydpaul”.
