with security there is no „done“
there is just constant iterations of the question: „is my system safe? Did i leave any doors (too wide) open? Am i allowing any unsafe programs/services? How can i protect users and data?“
„what services are save to use? from what device? and what services are NO-GOs!“
Open Source and Closed-Source software… both got flaws that can be exploited to extract money and or bitcoins from victims or halt infrastructure for quiet a significant amount of time (also hospitals can get virus infections… not funny!).
Let yourself be educated by security researches – to estimate – what is possible today – and maybe in the future – and do your best to stay safe.
Update yourself! Update your software! (maybe on a test-system first… to see what the fix breaks)
backup the backup! X-D
