End Dating an account in Linux

Often times we want to terminate an Linux account for security reasons. Below command can be used to do the same

/usr/sbin/usermod -e

This option (-e) can also be used when account is originally created. This gives extra security if you already know when the person will be out of the project.

Keep in mind that 70-80 % of hacking is internal in the organization.
