The goal of Security Configuration Management is to reduce the attack surface of systems by identifying misconfigurations, remediating them, and monitoring them so that they don't change. The result is a baseline configuration that is enforced as the security standard in our organizations. It’s the way to make sure that our systems perform as they are expected to as changes are made over time. By effectively managing configuration settings, we manage change, so change doesn't manage us.
