Secure your data using Linux
Alexandro Colorado

Event
There is a saying in the security world that the only truly safe computer system is one that is disconnected from the network, switched off and buried six feet under ground. The sentiment may be somewhat true but it is hardly a practical solution in current times when there are more and more computer systems connected to the internet and the numbers are growing at a rapid rate. Fortunately, operating systems like Linux and Unix are both more secure and less common than Windows based systems with the consequence that attacks on Linux systems occur less frequently than on Windows systems. In this session would discuss how to secure your desktop, server and keep your information private with a series of applications to lock down your server. You can also be secure on the internet and on your data.
