    There are multiple GUIs available for FreeBSD. If you have very little RAM, you can use something like twm (Tom's Window Manager), which is a very basic Window Manager. There is also blackbox, which doesn't use much RAM either, but looks a lot better than twm. XFce is another window manager that works great with less memory too. For machines with more memory, you can use KDE or Gnome window managers, which come with a lot more bells and whistles. See for details.

    As for security, this is the best place to start.
