Greetings fellow Linux security enthusiasts!

Interested in becoming a LinuxSecurity contributor, but need an article topic idea and some guidance to help you get started? 

We’re looking for contributors with an understanding of Linux backup solutions who can help us help the community protect their critical data in the event of a ransomware attack by providing insight into how to back up files on Linux desktops, servers and enterprise systems.

If you would like to contribute an article on this topic, we suggest that you explore:

  • The concept of data backup
  • The importance of having an effective backup plan in place, and the benefits of automating backup scheduling 
  • Linux backup tools/solutions (we love Timeshift, Rsync, Cloudberry and Bacula)
  • Potential security risks associated with using a backup tool and how to avoid common pitfalls

The contributor program provides you with the opportunity to share your knowledge and experience with a community of like-minded people who share your passion for Linux and security, receive comments from community members, and engage in meaningful discussions about the topics that interest you most.

To get started, register and customize your User Profile.

Please reach out to me at [email protected]">contribu[email protected] if you are interested in contributing an article on how to install security updates in Ubuntu and Debian, or if you have any additional questions.
