Simple but Effective Server Hardening

When: Tue December 08, 2015 07:30 PM to 09:00 PM

Speaker: Kyle Rankin

Location: O'Reilly Media

Server security is more important now than ever, yet many of the hardening guides out there read like they were written a decade ago (probably because they were!) Modern server hardening can be an obscure and complicated subject but it doesn’t have to be. There are a number of simple and fast-to-implement steps you can take to dramatically increase the security of your infrastructure. In this talk Kyle will start with an overview of security best practices and provide a series of current yet simple hardening examples effective for securing everything from traditional bare-metal networks, cloud infrastructure, and even your home network.
