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’ll fine-tune your Mac’s settings. For a more thorough understanding of OS X security and the tools you can use to secure your Mac, we urge you to continue reading beyond the basics. Beginning in  Chapter 2, 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.
