Web Server Configuration and Management Policy
This policy from TechRepublic Premium provides guidelines for the effective and secure configuration and management of web servers.
Because there are many types of web servers running on various operating systems, this policy is not intended to serve as a step-by-step technological guide but rather an overall series of platform-independent guidelines. Consult vendor documentation for the specifics of each policy requirement.
From the policy:
Company webpages represent the public face of an organization and serve as the backbone upon which many business operations are conducted. Customers can research and purchase products, employees can engage in marketing efforts to attract potential commerce, and users can engage in communication or collaboration to fulfill their job responsibilities.
However, due to the critical nature of many web servers and the data they transmit or contain, these systems are often attractive targets for malicious hackers. Data breaches can produce crippling financial losses and damage the company’s reputation, and many well-known companies have suffered as a result of compromised web servers. Even simple human error that results in server misconfiguration or failure to disable a former employee’s account can have a negative impact on the organization.
