Course Description

In the Network Security for Beginners Course, you will get an introduction to basic network security. Securing the network includes any activity designed to protect the usability and integrity of your network and data. It includes both hardware and software technologies. The over all scope of network security includes the installation, configuration, testing, operation, maintenance, and management of networks and their firewalls. This also covers the endpoints that your network touches, including hardware (e.g., hubs, bridges, switches, multiplexers, routers, cables, proxy servers, and protective distributor systems) and software that permit the sharing and transmission of all spectrum transmissions of information to support the security of information and information systems.

Ultimately, this course helps you understand how to protect proprietary information from attack, so authorized users gain access to network resources, but malicious actors are blocked from carrying out exploits and threats. This course also 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.
