The EBS Network Security curriculum is a composite course derived from Cisco’s CCNA Security content. Overlapping content is eliminated and some content is rearranged for the purpose of course flow.
This course introduces you to the core security technologies. Through a combination of classroom lecture and practical exercises, you’ll be able to develop your own security policies, to protect your IT infrastructure. The course is based on applying security through the features of Cisco’s IOS (Internetwork Operating System). The curriculum also covers core security technologies, the installation, troubleshooting and monitoring of network devices in order to maintain integrity, confidentiality and availability of data and devices.
