Many, if not most of us, have one or more things that we have inherited responsibility for in which we have little to no expertise in. The instinct is to leave these things alone for fear of breaking them. This often leads to unmitigated vulnerabilities and increases risk to the organization. In this webinar, we will discuss where to get started with securing a Linux server. We will discuss managing the Linux firewall, automated patching, service hardening, and other topics as time permits.
