Is Linux secure?

Don’t miss the updates of the Summer 2023 Edition!

You’ve probably heard of Linux, but maybe you’re not quite sure what it is, what you can do with it, and, more importantly, whether you can trust it to run your next project!

In this webinar, Canonical’s Ijlal Loutfi and Henry Coggill discuss the security of Linux and Ubuntu. We’ll start with the basics of why the operating system is important and how it underpins the integrity of any applications running on top. We will provide background information as to what Linux is, for those who might be unfamiliar with its history, and discuss how open-source software is developed and bundled into distributions.

We will discuss how the open-source ecosystem deals with security vulnerabilities, how they are discovered and fixed, and how end users react to this perpetual dance. Then we will go deeper into the range of security technology built into Ubuntu and what this means for protection against unknown threats. Finally, we will explore how Canonical’s enterprise-grade support delivers a comprehensive platform for secure open-source adoption.
