A security technician is attempting to improve the overall security posture of an internal mail server. Which of
the following actions would BEST accomplish this goal?
Monitoring event logs daily
Disabling unnecessary services
Deploying a content filter on the network
Deploy an IDS on the network
One of the most basic practices for reducing the attack surface of a specific host is to disable unnecessary
services. Services running on a host, especially network services provide an avenue through which the system
can be attacked. If a service is not being used, disable it.
