Benchmarks/secure configuration guides

Every company faces the challenge of protecting its servers and computers from an ever-increasing cyber security threat. There are many different types of servers: web servers, email servers, and database servers, and each of these has different configurations and services, so the baselines are different for each type of server. Vendors and manufacturers will provide platform/vendor guides so that their product can be configured as per their own best practices so that they perform as best they can.

Exam tip: Policies are written so that the security administrator knows what to configure, and end users know what part they play in keeping the company secure.
