System Hardening Standards


Hardening the systems in your organization is an important step in the fight to protect your sensitive data and information. Each and every day many systems online are compromised. The best defense against these attacks is to harden your systems. Attackers are lured by default configurations as most of the default configurations are not designed with security as the primary focus.


Hardening a system involves several steps to form layers of protection. So is the effort to make hardening standards which suits your business. You may be provided with vendor hardening guidelines or you may get prescriptive guides from sources like CIS, NIST etc., for hardening your systems. Would that be sufficient for your organization?
