Network security isn't a one-size-fits-all strategy. Dive into the various segments of network security, and learn how they overlap and interact with each other. IT has changed considerably, moving from a client-server environment to one driven by digital transformation, which increases the interaction of mobile devices, cloud resources such as SaaS and IaaS, and IoT. All this innovation has greatly expanded the ability of people and devices to communicate. What remains constant, however, is that the network, no matter what form it takes, must protect the usability and integrity of network resources.

The training course flow will be a mix of lectures & classroom discussions so that participants can have a detailed understanding of various components of network security.
