The changing threat landscape requires a change in mindset, as well as a repurposing of many devices. Where does this leave our classic perimeter devices such as firewalls? What are the ramifications of the ""encrypt everything"" mindset for devices such as Network Intrusion Detection Systems?
In this course, students will learn the fundamentals of up-to-date defensible security architecture and how to engineer it. There will be a heavy focus on leveraging current infrastructure (and investment), including switches, routers, and firewalls. Students will learn how to reconfigure these devices to significantly improve their organizations' prevention capabilities in the face of today's dynamic threat landscape. The course will also delve into the latest technologies and their capabilities, strengths, and weaknesses. You will come away with recommendations and suggestions that will aid in building a robust security infrastructure.
