A Picture of Tim with his arm folded looking very happy to be on your screen.

Hi, I’m Tim Nash
I like to scare people at conferences

I am a WordPress Security Consultant,
I talk (a lot) about WordPress security as well as subjects like performance and system administration at events, on Twitter and even the occasional article.

showed up, not that many people complained”

Fancy Reading email from Tim?

Subscribing means I will send you occasional emails about what I’m up to and cool stuff I want to share with you. I respect your privacy so much I don’t even use Google Analytics, seriously.

WordPress Security Consultant,
System Administrator & Developer


How many hats does one person need? Tim has certainly tried his hand at most of them. Tim’s background is in both development and security, he has run a development agency as well as developing and managing one of the largest WordPress hosting platforms in the UK. Today Tim is a WordPress security consultant, helping organisations with support, consultancy, training in WordPress security and WordPress hardening.

Part of the WordPress community


Tim has been actively involved in the UK community since, well, there has been a UK community. He has helped organise WordPress Leeds, the oldest User Group in the country, for over 10 years. He is one of the admins for the WordPress Community UK Slack group and has spoken at nearly every UK WordPress User Group.

Tim Talks a lot at conferences and at smaller user groups


While usually focusing on WordPress and Security his topics have been pretty varied from testing methodologies through to robbing banks. His talks tend to be entertaining and informative with the aim to make things accessible but also to make it easy for people to research.

Tim is nearly always happy to come and talk to your group or conference virtually and hopefully outside of 2020 in person for information see his Speaking Page.
