Lesson Descriptions
Module 1, Network Security Essentials, starts with TCP/IP Essentials. The lesson then moves on to critical security controls, access controls, and password management. This lesson also explores network security devices and device security; web communication security based on the Center for Internet Security (CIS), and wireless network security.
Module 2, "Defense in Depth and Attacks, looks at malicious code and exploit mitigation, along with defense in depth and defensible network architecture. Lastly, this lesson covers active defense and implementing endpoint security.
Module 3,Threat Management," discusses log management and SIEM. It then gets into vulnerability scanning, penetration testing, virtualization, and lastly, Cloud Security.
Module 4, Cryptography, Risk Management, and Response, evaluates cryptography concepts and algorithms, which will then be applied with security policies and procedures. Next, this lesson will cover IT risk management, as well as incident handling and response. Lastly, this lesson will cover several aspects of contingency planning.
Module 5, Windows Security Essentials, is a hands-on demonstration of Windows security infrastructure; Windows access controls and security policy enforcement; Network services; Azure cloud computing; and Windows Automation, Auditing, and Forensics.
Module 6,Linux Security Essentials, will also be hands-on demonstrations, but this lesson will cover all things Linux: Linux Security Structure, Permissions and Access, Linux server Hardening and Securing, Monitoring and Attack Detection, and Linux security utilities.
