Mick Hawkins, Developer and Application Security Engineer at Moodle HQ

Security in Moodle is taken very seriously by our team, our open source community and our Certified Partners. Moodle’s development practices include security by design. This means that we embed a security mindset right from the start in all of our development to deliver a secure platform. As with any software, there are also some basic security precautions you can follow to help keep your own Moodle installation secure.

Today, we’ll look at some of the things you can do as a Moodle administrator to configure your site securely, and help keep your users and their data safe. If you have any specific questions about the tips raised here, or securing your Moodle site in general, we encourage you to seek advice via our Moodle Community Forums or to reach out to our experienced Certified Moodle Partners, who can help with all aspects of your Moodle installation.
