Computer security can feel like an arms race at times, but at least with the Linux kernel and open source everything is out in the open and there’s an entire world of developers whose livelihoods depend on the FOSS ecosystem being secured.

We’ll guide you through better password management, easy system back ups, locking down files with encryption to battening down the hatches when you set sail across the web.
