Linux has become a staple in most organizational IT environments, due to its reliability and capacity to handle heavy duty tasks for enterprise servers. Unfortunately, these are the very same reasons Linux has become a popular target for attackers. The data Linux servers store and the networks they support are so valuable, attackers have decided it is worth the time to invest in creating malware geared toward Linux.
For many years, Linux was thought to be immune to attack. But even though those days are long over, many environments have still not taken the basic steps needed to decrease their vulnerability and significantly reduce risk.
This course is designed to teach you Linux security tips and tricks that are easy to implement while making it harder to be attacked.
