What is System Hardening?

System hardening is the process of allocating assets according to security best practices to reduce their vulnerability to cyber attacks. This process involves reducing the "attack surface" of the content by disabling unnecessary services, user accounts, and ports. The purpose of system hardening is very simple.

Why it is required ?

System hardening can restore continuous work, but efforts will pay off substantially across the organization in the following ways: Enhanced system features - because fewer programs and fewer features mean operational problems, misconfigurations, and crashes . The risk of compatibility and compromise is smaller. Dramatically improves security Reduced attack surface means reduced risk of data leaks, unauthorized access, system hacks or malware. Simplified compliance and auditability: Fewer procedures and accounts, plus a less complex environment, means that the auditing environment is generally more transparent and straightforward.

Why Data privacy and Protection is required?

Data privacy is important because in order for individuals to be willing to participate online, they must be confident that their personal data will be treated with care.
