For those who saw my JaxLUG presentation yesterday, here are the slides. This presentation was based on the guide I published today, also called Hardening a VPS.

Not every VPS is created equally. Make sure yours is secure before trusting it on the internet.
This guide is for CentOS 6 x86_64, but can be used for many other Linux systems with minor alteration. All commands in this guide will need to be done as root, or using sudo.
Here’s a quick list of everything we’re covering in this guide.

Thanks to everyone who attended my presentation, "Intro to Physical Security" at Jacksonville IT Pro Camp 2013. The slides can be found here:
I will be giving an Introduction to Physical Security at the Jacksonville IT Pro Camp next month, where I will talk about securing your physical entry-points to protect your digital assets. Inversely, I will also talk about how a security professional can test physical security measures for weak spots.
The Jacksonville IT Pro Camp is a (free) one-day conference dedicated to helping IT professionals learn new skills in various disciplines of Information Technology. Anyone wanting to learn something new is welcome to attend, as there will be a wide variety of topics ranging from beginner to advanced, from Windows Administration to Database Design to Information Security. There's sure to be something there for everyone!
Other local IT and InfoSec professionals will also be presenting, including Brent Morris, Ovidiu Dimulescu, Jesse Webb, and more.
The conference will be on Saturday, June 15, from 8 am to 5 pm at ITT Technical Institute Jacksonville, and free lunch is included for attendees. Registration is on the link below:
If you missed the presentation, I will have a video posted in the near future!
