- Hello, I'm Lisa Bock, and welcome to Foundations of IT Security: Operating Systems Security. The operating system provides integration of attached devices, manages files and folders, and is the interface between the user, applications and the network, and can provide a graphical user interface where users can browse the web, edit documents, and more. Operating system security is important because the operating system is where many attacks are launched and targeted.
In this course, I'll introduce you to user authentication, enforcing permissions, auditing, protecting the server, and best practices for working with protocols and email. At the end of this course, you'll have a better understanding of the elements and concepts involved in securing an operating system, and you'll be ready to investigate even more of the elements of operating system concepts either for a PC or a server. Now, lets get started.
