Course Overview

This course provides a unique, in-depth look at the major business challenges and threats that are introduced when an organization's network is connected to the public Internet. This course also provides a comprehensive explanation of network security basics, including how hackers access online networks and the use of Firewalls and VPNs to provide security countermeasures.

In addition to premium instructional content from Jones & Bartlett Learning's comprehensive Information Systems Security and Assurance (ISSA) curriculum, this course provides access to a customized "virtual sandbox" learning environment that aggregates an unparalleled spectrum of cybersecurity applications.
