That's a very open ended question that has no simple answer.
I recommend you read the 'Security References' sticky on this forum https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...erences-45261/ to start with, then come back with more specific questions.

Unfortunately, there is no program you can install or device you can run that will accomplish this task. Security is an on going process and includes things like keeping your system up to date, vigilence in monitoring the logs and state of the system, and ensuring that any applications you are running are properly configured and secured.

If you could / would focus your question more directly, such as we have a server with these functions .... we would be happy to assist you with developing an approach to securing your system. If you do wish for this help, please include relevant information, such as which distribution you are running, and whether or not you have been applying updates and any exisitng security processes and programs you currently use. For example, are you running any sort of HIDS or are you analyzing your network traffic with snort.
