Course description

In this course you will learn how to secure an Ubuntu Linux server against attacks from hackers because these simple steps can block most basic hacking attempts and provide peace of mind when running our servers.

Why take the 45 minutes to quickly secure our servers as soon as we get them?

Amateur hackers can crack our default hosting provider settings fairly easily using programs downloaded from the Internet. We can block these hacks with just a few minutes of running the commands in the Command Line Interface I show here and signing in with RSA keys instead of passwords! 

I hope that this course filmed using Ubuntu Linux 16.04 will be useful for you.

Jerry Banfield

I started my business in 2011 to help others overcome the same problems I struggled with starting with addiction, relationships, and money. After accumlating $100,000+ in debt to stay in business, I discovered teaching online in 2014. Within three years, I produced 3,000+ video tutorials and paid off all the debt while struggling to maintain ongoing relationships with my students. To help students and instructors grow better together, we launched Uthena in 2019 as the first marketplace offering the ability to publish free offers, courses, memberships, and services all in one place! I am grateful today for 5 years sober, 3 years plant based diet, 6 years married, 3 years parenting, and 7 years as an entrepreneur online with 2,300+ YouTube videos, 21 books, 680+ blog posts, 800+ podcast episodes, 70 songs on iTunes/Spotify, and 57+ video courses where I am the primary instructor on Uthena!
