Hey there, fellow Linux admins and infosec pros! Today we explore data governance, its meaning, and how it helps organizations communicate data security policies between teams. Data governance involves ensuring we're following our data security policies, so we'll also discuss how Linux admins can use tools like OpenVAS, snort, and many others to mitigate risk, ensure we're following data standards and regulations, monitor access to data and how it's being used, and even how to respond to a security incident.

Passkey security and secure, efficient Linux device management for MSPs are also topics we explore this week.

If you found this newsletter valuable, please share it with a fellow Linux security geek! Is there a Linux security-related topic you want to cover for our audience? We welcome contributions from passionate, knowledgeable community members like you!

Yours in Open Source,

Unlocking the Future of Authentication: Passkeys vs. Passwords

29.WorldMap PinPad

Passwords are no longer required with the emergence of passkeys, which is one of the main advantages of this convenient, up-and-coming feature. Let’s discuss in more depth what a passkey is and examine the pros and cons of using one so you can decide whether to exchange passwords for passkeys. We'll also explore how major organizations use passkeys and explain how you can implement passkeys securely through all platforms.
