Planning for instance hardening
Knowing that you should be securing your instances but not knowing where to start is a tough place to be. Fortunately, with a few simple guidelines and tools provided by ServiceNow, you can make a big impact quickly. Let’s start with a clear picture of where security should be applied in your ServiceNow deployment.
