Course Description

In the Advanced Network Security Course, you will dive deeper into the core concepts of network security. Network security is any activity designed to protect the usability and integrity of your network and data. It includes both hardware and software technologies.

Network security ultimately helps you protect proprietary information from attack, so authorized users gain access to network resources, but malicious actors are blocked from carrying out exploits and threats. Network security covers a variety of computer networks, both public and private, that are used in everyday jobs, such as conducting transactions and communications among businesses, government agencies, and individuals. It secures the network, as well as protecting and overseeing operations being done, meaning it is an important area for cyber security professionals to learn.
