  3. Use strong passwords: Create strong, unique passwords for all user accounts and change them frequently.

  4. Limit user privileges: Limit the privileges of users and groups to prevent unauthorized access to sensitive files and resources.

  5. Configure SSH: Configure SSH to use secure authentication methods such as key-based authentication and disable root login.

  6. Monitor logs: Regularly review system logs to detect and respond to any suspicious activity.

  7. Encrypt sensitive data: Use disk encryption tools to protect sensitive data stored on the device.

  8. Use intrusion detection software: Use intrusion detection software to detect and alert on unauthorized access attempts.

  9. Use a VPN: Use a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to encrypt your internet connection and protect your device from network-based attacks.
