    True security is never a "one time" thing, and will always need updating and monitoring. Unfortunately, this is just something that you have to keep an eye on constantly, and shouldn't even be managed by a "control panel" (though it helps).

    True security means keeping an eye on logs, what your system is doing, listening to your system when it tells you things, etc.
