Students will learn how to install, operate, configure, and verify a basic IPv4 and IPv6 network, including configuring a LAN switch, configuring an IP router, connecting to a WAN, and identifying basic security threats. Students will also gain an in‐depth knowledge of systems security, access control, network infrastructure, assessments and audits, cryptography and organizational security across all vendor products. These skills have become increasingly important, as additional safeguards such as intrusion detection systems, physical access control and multi‐factor authentication become standard methods of protection.
Students are given real world scenarios to reinforce the material covered and will learn how to apply the concepts to their daily operations. IT Security Administrator Program teaches critical knowledge of communication security, infrastructure security, cryptography, operational security, and general security concepts. Because human error is the number one cause for a network security breach, CompTIA Security+ and Cisco Interconnecting Networking Devices Courses are recognized by the technology community as a valuable credential that proves competency with information security.
