About the course
Certified Network Defender Training
Organizational focus on cyber defense is more important than ever as cyber breaches have a far greater financial impact and can cause broad reputational damage.
Despite best efforts to prevent breaches, many organizations are still being compromised. Therefore, organizations must have, as part of their defense mechanisms, trained network engineers who are focused on protecting, detecting, and responding to the threats on their networks.
Network administrators spend a lot of time with network environments, and are familiar with network components, traffic, performance and utilization, network topology, location of each system, security policy, etc. so organizations can be much better equipped to defend themselves from attacks if the IT and network administrators are equipped with adequate network security skills. Thus Network administrators can play a significant role in network defense and become first line of defense for any organization.
Students enrolled in the Certified Network Defender course, will gain a detailed understanding and hands on ability to function in real life situations involving network defense. They will gain the technical depth required to actively design a secure network in your organization. This program will be akin to learning maths instead of just using a calculator. This course gives the student a fundamental understanding of the true construct of data transfer, network technologies and software technologies so that they understand how networks operate, understand what software is automating and how to analyze the subject material.
Students will learn how to protect, detect and respond to network attacks. They will learn network defense fundamentals, the application of network security controls, protocols, perimeter appliances, secure IDS, VPN and firewall configuration. Students will then learn the intricacies of network traffic signature, analysis and vulnerability scanning which will help when they design greater network security policies and successful incident response plans. These skills will help the students foster resiliency and continuity of operations during attacks.
Certified Network Defender (CND) is a vendor-neutral, hands-on, instructor-led comprehensive network security certification training program. It is a skills-based, lab intensive program based on a job-task analysis and cybersecurity education framework.
The course prepares network administrators with network security technologies and operations to attain Defense-in-Depth network security preparedness. It covers the protect, detect and respond approach to network security. The course contains hands-on labs, based on major network security tools and techniques which will provide network administrators real world expertise on current network security technologies and operations. The study-kit provides you with over 10 GB of network security best practices, assessments and protection tools. The kit also contains templates for various network policies and a large number of white papers for additional learning.
