Best Practices in Network Security
Live Instructor-Led Classroom Training

Attaining a high level of network security is a matter of systematically implementing and maintaining the best security practices we can devise. This 2-day workshop trains participants in how to establish and maintain topnotch security in the face of ever more sophisticated threats.

Best Practices is presented as a combination of hands-on labs, demonstrations and lecture. Each unit has a full series of practical hands-on labs to reinforce the presented material. Labs include firewalls, use of authentication and encryption tools, implementing effective antivirus measures — and more — as noted in the following outline.

Attendees return to their jobs with a clear understanding of the security obstacles they face and armed with a powerful set of skills and tools to overcome them.
