A critical aspect of risk and security management is having a clear picture of the present threatscape. This involves knowledge of threats actors, exploits, vulnerabilities, and malware along with countermeasures that include various technical, physical, and managerial controls. Take this course to learn to recognize several types of network attacks. Examine various methods for managing network security, from network device placement to configuring access control lists and using firewalls and proxies. Furthermore, learn how to secure network-based security devices as well as routers and switches. Then, delve into content delivery networking, cloud-based load balancers, and intrusion detection and prevention. Upon course completion, you'll know what's involved in both network attacks and countermeasures. You'll also be further prepared for the (ISC)² Systems Security Certified Practitioner (SSCP) 2021 exam.
