The importance of secure IT systems cannot be overstated. Every day, new cyber threats emerge. As well as online networks, operating systems can also be vulnerable. Although Linux is more secure than other operating systems, no operating system is 100% safe from attacks.
In fact, there has been a rise in cyber attacks targeting Linux operating systems. High-value targets are often powered by Linux, making Linux security very important. For example, organizations who aim to stay HIPAA compliant in their communications need to make sure every piece of software they use—including their operating systems and even their digital workplace software—is as secure as possible.
