Industry Best Practices for SSH Access


Think About Your Audience Before Choosing a Webinar Title


Wednesday, September 9, 2020

We've all used SSH dozens of times, but do we really understand how to SSH properly? Using such a powerful tool can come with a lot of risks, especially when we're on highly distributed teams with well-trodden workflows that can be tough to change. In an era of sophisticated phishing attacks and threats always knocking at our doors, we could all use a little help with making sure our infrastructure is as secure as it can be.
Join Gus Luxton from Gravitational as he talks about how you too can level up your SSH game - switch from keys to certificates, funnel your access through a bastion server, set up 2-factor authentication and cross-reference your users with an external identity provider. For reference, check out Gus’ blog on the topic, How to SSH Properly

What You’ll Learn in This Webinar

You’ve probably written a hundred abstracts in your day, but have you come up with a template that really seems to resonate? Go back through your past webinar inventory and see what events produced the most registrants. Sure – this will vary by topic but what got their attention initially was the description you wrote.

Paint a mental image of the benefits of attending your webinar. Often times this can be summarized in the title of your event. Your prospects may not even make it to the body of the message, so get your point across immediately.  Capture their attention, pique their interest, and push them towards the desired action (i.e. signing up for your event). You have to make them focus and you have to do it fast. Using an active voice and bullet points is great way to do this.

Always add key takeaways. Something like this....In this session, you’ll learn about:

  • You know you’ve cringed at misspellings and improper grammar before, so don’t get caught making the same mistake.
  • Get a second or even third set of eyes to review your work.
  • It reflects on your professionalism even if it has nothing to do with your event.
