Prior to working directly for SUSE, he played an important role in bringing the SUSE and Novell engineering teams together with common tools and processes. Formerly an engineer, Craig now serves as an engineering manager for SUSE Enterprise Storage (which uses Ceph). He has a long history with and love for the Open Build Service. Beyond SUSE, Craig teaches software engineering courses at Utah Valley University. And he loves linux since Slackware 2.0. Craig has been a valued presenter at SUSECon, openSUSE events, OpenWest, LINUXCon, and at the U.S. National School Board Administration annual conference.

It is incumbent upon each system administrator to ensure that each system in the infrastructure is as secure as possible. One compromised system can endanger all. It's the simple principle of "a chain is only as strong as its weakest link." The principles presented in this talk will reduce the risk of vulnerability. The principles are based on years of expertise shared among the various distributions. Although the details are derived from SUSE Linux, the principles are universal to any and all operating systems. Don't get caught with your pants down, exposed.
