Course Description

In this 9-video course, learners will examine end-user security from the security administrator point-of-view including threatscape, security policies, training and awareness, Layer 2 security, 802.1x, MACsec, endpoint detection and response (EDR), advanced endpoint protection, and vendor solutions. Begin by taking a look at the present threatscape, while keeping in mind that it is constantly evolving, stealthy, and complex. You will examine written security policies, which every organization must have, and which apply to the entire organization. The policies must be well-written, comprehensive in scope, concise, easy to understand, and well organized. Next, you will explore training and awareness, which must be implemented for your end-users within the first few months of employment. You will compare access switch and wireless application protocol (WAP) security; describe 802.1x and MACsec; EDR protection, and next-generation EDR. In the closing exercise, you will be asked to list characteristics of next-generation EDR solutions, actions you can take with 802.1x port-based Network Access Control (PNAC), and the attributes of an effective security policy.
