- [Lisa] Hello, my name is Lisa Bock, and welcome to IT Security Foundations: Operating System Security. The operating system provides integration of attached devices, manages files and folders, and is the interface between the user, applications, and the network. However, the operating system is where many attacks are launched and targeted. In this course I'll introduce you to authentication, how to enforce permissions, conduct auditing, and ways to protect the server. I'll cover best practices for securing email, along with some basics of encryption. At the end of this course, you'll have a better understanding of what's involved in securing an operating system, and you'll be ready to investigate even more of the elements of operating system security for either a PC or a server. Now let's get started.
