I will try to run a forum (I know it's definitely not easy) but I am pretty concerned about security. Quite a few forums I frequent have closed down due to hackers. Are there any FREE forum software that can deter hacking well?

I would say vBulletin and IPB are more secure in the way they handle security issues. And banning options, vBulletin is good in this respect, as is it's Admin control panel. You can ban users usernames, ip, and set email addresses that people will not be able to register with. But they are not FREE.

I think free forum softwares are more vulnerable to hacking and security issues. SMF would be the ideal free forum software for you. It has less security flaws compared to other free softwares.

Thanks Peter. Does Joomla come with it's own forum, or is it just a CMS?

Joomla is a Content Management System created by the same team that brought the Mambo CMS. Joomla, formerly known as Mambo, is one of the most popular free open source software projects. As far as I know Joomla doesn't come with it's own forum software but you should go through the following links to get more information

The paid forum CMS might have a good performance for securtiy issues. If you intend to use a free one like phpBB, choose a good control panel is a key to protect from the hacker attack. Some control panels are designed with a build-in firewall module, iptables (https://vpsrobots.com/documents/how-to-set-up-iptables-with-vpsrobots.html), to easily block the suspicious IP addresses and ports.

The ISF released the updated Standard of Good Practice for Information Security in 2018. The Standard is available to ISF members and non-members, who can purchase copies of the report. The 2018 Standard represents an update on the 2016 release of the Standard, and builds upon the previous release to include the most up-to-date controls, approaches and thought leadership in information security.

The standard is a business-focused, practical and comprehensive guide available for identifying and managing information security risks in organizations.[1]

The 2016 standard covers current information security 'hot topics' such as Threat Intelligence, Cyber Attack Protection and Industrial Control Systems, as well as, significant enhancement of existing topics including: Information Risk Assessment, Security Architecture and Enterprise Mobility Management. It can be used to build a comprehensive and effective information security management system. In addition to covering information security-related standards such as COBIT 5 for Information Security, The CIS Critical Security Controls for Effective Cyber Defense, the 2016 standard covers ISO/IEC 27002 as well as PCI DSS 3.1 and the NIST Cybersecurity Framework.
