Course Objective

On the completion of this course the delegate will be familiar with some basics concepts of Network Security .It will provide them with critical foundational information concerning firewall technology, security risks and remediation, and network security design and implementation considerations. Additionally, you will learn how to configure and implement firewall appliances and extend the firewall's capability using rules, security applications, and other network specific functions and troubleshooting techniques
Course Requirements: All delegates must complete 7S TP-101 or have permission from our course director before taking this course who will assess that they have basic knowledge of networking concepts, network topologies, and the OSI model of networking protocol.
