Abstract

Ready to start securing your Mac? Let’s get right into it. Keep in mind that this chapter is meant to be a quick-and-dirty start to securing your Mac, for the “I don’t have time to dive into the nitty-gritty, I need to get my Mac secured right away” readers. This chapter will give you just the basics to get your Mac secure quickly, and although it will leave you with a fairly secure system, it’s not as comprehensive as the subsequent chapters, where we fine-tune your Mac’s settings. For a more thorough understanding of Mac OS X security and the tools you can use to secure your Mac, we urge you to continue reading beyond the basics. From Chapter 2 on, you’ll be introduced to all the other intricacies surrounding securing the Mac OS, diving deeper into the larger concepts of what is covered here in this quick-start.
