Securing PCs and Macs - The NSA Way
In the past I've blogged about some of the resources the National Security Agency (NSA) provides the public through its Information Assurance program. Today I want to steer you toward a collection of guides devoted to best practices in securing operating systems. You'll find how-to information for hardening various versions of Mac OS X and Windows. Check out what the NSA has to say about the type of operating system your organization uses. Even if it all doesn't make sense, I bet you'll learn something in the process. At the very least, pass the link on to someone in your IT department. It's a good lead-in to getting together for coffee to start coming up to speed on computer security basics.
