Linux Foundation Offering New Online Security Course

IT security threats seem to be everywhere, but skilled IT security professionals do not seem to be nearly as pervasive. It’s a conundrum that the Linux Foundation wants to help alleviate with the introduction of a new online Linux skills training program.

The online course, called Linux Security Fundamentals (LFS216), is an attempt to help individuals evaluate their own organizations’ security readiness. The course is not intended as an introduction for those who are new to Linux, but rather is targeted at those already running Linux systems.
