Advanced Network Security

Delivery: classroom // Duration: 3 days

This course is about the realisation of IT Security on the level of network infrastructure. Usually security is implemented at single points of a network (eg. at firewalls or on important servers). The perspective from a network infrastructure often is not taken care of. The growing complexity of Network structures brings along many risks for secure traffic and high availability. You will learn what kind of dangers there are on a network level and how efficient security measures can be implemented.Our trainer, Christopher Werny, has many years of experience in different provider environments and in managing big enterprise networks – and running them securely. Basic network knowledge and TCP/IP.
