How to develop a user-oriented security layer

The term User Hardening has its origin in the Hardening processes that are usually applied in organizations and consist of securing an operating system, server or application, reducing its vulnerabilities or security holes.

As users are also part of the organizations’ information systems and have their own vulnerabilities – which are exploited daily by cybercriminals around the world – it is necessary that they also undergo a hardening process.

This Whitepaper demonstrates how to perform, step by step, a continuous User Hardening process.
