Why you should take the program

In today’s world cyber security degrees are more in demand than ever. Living in the digital age means hackers and cyberterrorists have endless opportunities to exploit individuals, government institutions and large companies. So, to defend against cyber attacks and security breaches, top organizations are willing to pay for a Cyber Analysts to remove vulnerabilities and protect their data and sites.

Core Components

Network Infrastructure Security, typically applied to enterprise IT environments, is a process of protecting the underlying networking infrastructure by installing preventative measures to deny unauthorized access, modification, deletion, and theft of resources and data. In this unit, you will gain a comprehensive knowledge on the different areas of Infrastructure Security.

Access control systems are the electronic systems that are designed to control through a network and they should have an access to a network. Access Control System recognizes authenticates and authorizes entry of a person to enter into the premise thereby giving complete protection ensuring security with the system.

Video surveillance serves as the remote eyes for management and the security force. It provides security personnel with advance notice of breaches in security, including hostile and terrorist acts, and is a part of the plan to protect personnel and assets. It is a critical subsystem for any comprehensive security plan. This course provides you a comprehensive knowledge of the different types of Video Survellience Systems. 

An intrusion detection system is a monitor-only application designed to identify and report on anomalies before hackers can damage your network infrastructure. IDS is either installed on your network or a client system. An intrusion detection system (IDS) is a device or software application that monitors a network for malicious activity or policy violations. Any malicious activity or violation is typically reported or collected centrally using a security information and event management system.

In computer networking, localhost is a hostname that refers to the current computer used to access it. It is used to access the network services that are running on the host via the loopback network interface. Using the loopback interface bypasses any local network interface hardware.

 Device Security refers to the measures designed to protect sensitive information stored on and transmitted by laptops, smartphones, tablets, wearables, and other portable devices. At the root of  device security is the goal of keeping unauthorized users from accessing the enterprise network.

Protecting your inner perimeter is usually accomplished with locks, keys and alarm systems. The purpose of locks and keys is to keep intruders out. An electronic access control system is also a useful tool to control the flow of traffic into your inner perimeter. Perimeter Security technologies provide a range of security services from basic firewall protection through to end-to-end security for your network and business. In essence, perimeter security is as it says, a defence system around your network designed to stop malicious attacks from entering.

Secure remote access refers to any security policy, solution, strategy or process that exists to prevent unauthorized access to your network, its resources, or any confidential or sensitive data. Essentially, secure remote access is a mix of security strategies and not necessarily one specific technology like a VPN.

LANs share data, processing and communication. As the area a LAN spans becomes greater, so does the chance of interception. Information security – Protecting data traveling throughout the network. Authentication, confidentiality, access control. The most common strategy to secure a Local Area Network is installing a firewall resource behind a single access point such as an initial wireless router. … Another way to secure a LAN is by filtering traffic in trusted network areas.

The foundations of networking: switches, routers, and wireless access points. Switches, routers, and wireless access points are the essential networking basics. Through them, devices connected to your network can communicate with one another and with other networks, like the Internet.

A network protocol is an established set of rules that determine how data is transmitted between different devices in the same network. Essentially, it allows connected devices to communicate with each other, regardless of any differences in their internal processes, structure or design.

A network server, today, is a powerful computer that provides various shared resources to workstations and other servers on a network. The shared resources can include disk space, hardware access and email services. … Servers are usually built with more powerful components than individual workstations. This unit will provide you a comprehensive knowledge about the different Network Servers.

Network connectivity is the process of connecting the different parts of the network through access points (APs), routers, and gateways. Since this process supports devices that often offer critical services to patients and providers, slow or unreliable connectivity is unacceptable.

Network connectivity is the process of connecting the different parts of the network through access points (APs), routers, and gateways. Since this process supports devices that often offer critical services to patients and providers, slow or unreliable connectivity is unacceptable.

Perimeter security is the philosophy of setting up functional apparatus or techniques at the perimeter of the network to secure data and resources. It is part of the greater security field and has its own role in active system protection.

Cyber environment include users, networks, devices, all software, processes, stored or transit information, applications, services, and systems that can be directly or indirectly connected to networks. In this unit, you will gain a solid understanding of the different aspects of the Cyber Environment. 

A virtual private network (VPN) can hide a user’s internal protocol address (IP address) and block their location and browser history, allowing them to share and receive information on public internet networks more privately. In this course, you will learn and understand the different techniques and tactics of hiding the Private Network. 

Perimeter security is comprised of systems like firewalls and browser isolation systems. … Essentially, in perim.eter security, security professionals are trying to create a perimeter-based approach to secure systems and ward off threats as they enter a network

Organizations looking to safeguard data in transit against malware attacks or intrusions should implement network security solutions such as firewalls and network access controls. Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solutions usually address the threats data in motion faces from breaches and human error during its transit.

In this course, you will learn about the different Cyber Secuirty tools and utilites. This includes learning and understanding about the different utilities and applications of Cyber Security and their functions. 

There are plenty of other harmful web application vulnerabilities such as insecure cryptography, insufficient logging and monitoring, and using components with known vulnerabilities. Being aware of all of them will help you enhance security and protect valuable data against security threats.

Students will be given a solid practicum foundation in a practicum provider’s location. Students need to apply all the concepts that are being taught in the program and this will enhance their practical knowledge.
