Course Description

Network security plays a vital role in most of the organizations. It is the process of preventing and detecting unauthorized use of an organization’s networking infrastructure. It protects networks and their services from unauthorized modification, destruction, or disclosure.

Network security assures that a network performs its critical functions securely without any harmful side effects. Security awareness and well-structured training can help find the weaknesses of a network and keep network administrators abreast of the latest threats and techniques by gaining a better understanding of risk exposure as well as the newest countermeasures.

The Network Defense Essentials (NDE) program covers the fundamental concepts of network security. It equips students with the skills required to identify the increasing network security threats that reflect on the organization’s security posture and implement general security controls to protect the underlying networking infrastructure from unauthorized access, modification, destruction, or disclosure.
