I was recently interviewed by Kyle Johnson for Tech Target. Kyle did a good job hitting a nice range of timely and important topics as we discussed my Wiley book: Linux Security Fundamentals. We discussed ransomware, automated failover backups, and general security hygiene.
You can read a transcript of the interview here.
It turns out that, despite the title, the book isn’t really about Linux. It was originally intended to be an exam guide for a platform-neutral certification that, in the end, never happened. On Wiley’s request, I added a handful of Linux projects in appropriate chapters, and we rebranded the book “Linux.”
But 90% of the content is applicable no matter what OS you’re running.
