Avoid These Common Mistakes for a More Secure Linux System
Are you looking to gain a better understanding of current security trends, technologies, and policies that are set to shape the next five years of security software and the dynamic landscape of open-source security? I know I'm fascinated with the direction this ever-evolving industry is heading. We recently sat down with two leading Linux security professionals to go deep into this topic and provide invaluable Linux security advice you won't get elsewhere.

To offer Linux admins the knowledge and basic skills they need, here's a comprehensive guide to preventing Linux DDoS attacks with minimal cybersecurity knowledge. We explore exactly what DDoS attacks are, how they work, and why they often happen. We also discuss some typical defensive and mitigation strategies admins can use with stand-alone and cloud-based Linux servers, common misconceptions about DDoS attacks, and offer a quick overview of today's top open-source DDoS mitigation tools.
System administrators make mistakes, which are a critical part of the learning process. Learning from your mistakes will develop more skills, advance your career, and make you a better sysadmin. However, It's also helpful to learn from the blunders of others. This is why we've compiled a list of 10 common security mistakes sysadmins make and how to avoid these problems.
In this article, we cover a wide range of topics, including current security trends, technologies, and policies that are set to shape the next five years of security software and the ever-evolving landscape of open-source security. As fellow Linux and open-source professionals, we know how much this information impacts our work. I think Nathan Montierth says it best in the article when he states that "The biggest change we're seeing in Linux security is at the endpoints, and it's opening up both new challenges and opportunities in the Linux security landscape."
