Securing and strengthening the underlying technology stack to reduce the risk of cyber threats and attacks.
Infrastructure hardening involves the process of securing and strengthening the underlying technology stack (hardware and software) to reduce the risk of cyber threats and attacks. The aim is to ensure that the infrastructure is resilient to external threats and internal vulnerabilities. Infrastructure hardening involves various techniques and strategies, such as patching and updating systems, disabling unnecessary services and ports, implementing access controls, using encryption technologies, and conducting vulnerability scans and penetration testing. A comprehensive infrastructure hardening approach requires a deep understanding of the technology stack and the associated risks and threats, as well as the ability to implement best practices and security standards.
