CompTIA Network+ 2009: Network Security
This course is included in our On-demand training solution.
The need for network security has grown immensely in recent years and as a consequence, security technologies have grown as well. Security technologies can take the form of protocols, applications, and hardware devices, and many, if not all, of these things can be found in todays enterprise networks as well as most home networks. This course focuses on the threats facing today’s networks and information, and the steps administrators can take to mitigate these issues. It also explores the processes and procedures that should be in place to prevent security breaches and to recover from threats that get past network defenses. In addition, types of security software, such as antivirus and anti-spyware scanners are covered, along with the various protocols and services, such as SSH and SSL, used in an overall network security system. Also described are basic security procedures including policy creation, user training, and software patching and updating.
This course maps to the CompTIA Network+ (2009) exam objectives for explaining the function of hardware and software security devices and the issues that affect device security, explaining common features of a firewall, explaining the methods of network access security and user authentication, and identifying common security threats and mitigation techniques.
The audience for CompTIA Network+ 2009 training will comprise IT personnel with at least 9 months IT networking experience. Good computer literacy along with a sound technical acumen should be present. Students looking to acquire job skills, and to be trained specifically to pass the associated CompTIA Network+ (2009 Edition) certification exam will want to study this learning path.
