RH415-Red Hat Security: Linux in Physical, Virtual, and Cloud

Red Hat Security: Linux in Physical, Virtual, and Cloud (RH415) is designed for security administrators and system administrators who need to manage the secure operation of servers running Red Hat Enterprise Linux whether deployed on physical hardware, as virtual machines, or as cloud instances.

Maintaining security of computing systems is a process of managing risk through the implementation of processes and standards backed by technologies and tools. In this course, you will learn about resources that can be used to help you implement and comply with your security requirements.
