Safety first. It’s an old adage that holds true whether you’re holding scissors, handling a hot pan, crossing a busy street or securing your digital devices. ZZ Servers Co-Founder and Managing Partner David M. Zendzian will offer tips on how to keep your information safe at tech SAVannah’s Refresh Savannah: Lightning Talk series in January.
Zendzian’s talk, titled “Watch your apps, logging and log monitoring with fail2ban,” will explore the use of fail2ban, an intrusion prevention software that protects computer applications and servers against data breaches.
Fail2ban monitors log files for IP addresses that display suspicious signs such as multiple password failures or other unwanted actions within a certain time-frame. The software can block select IP addresses, update firewall rules, reconfigure application white-lists and send email, slack and SMS notifications.
“It’s not enough to just monitor your logs for a threat to your data,” Zendzian says. “You have to be able to take action quickly when that threat arrives. That’s why an intrusion protection software is essential to your cybersecurity arsenal.”
Zendzian will make his presentation at the Refresh Savannah: Lightning Talk at 6 p.m. on Jan. 19, 2017 at Oak Works, 2424 De Soto Ave., Savannah, Ga.
