Defending Against Risks


This course will provide students with the concepts and issues surrounding one of the more debated areas of security: risk analysis. This course shows students different methods of risk analysis, different standards, and different techniques to minimize risk. Also, this course includes the concepts of security policies and their implementation. This course introduces students to different methods of policy creation and implementation, in order to describe the types of policies that might be created. This course examines the methods of security response and how response is related to policy. The student can describe incident handling and escalation procedures, and define how to create an escalation procedure and how it is implemented.We designed the Network Defense and Countermeasures course for the student who is a network administrator responsible for maintaining a wide range of network technologies. To ensure your success, we recommend that you first take the Element K course Hardening The Infrastructure or that you have equivalent knowledge. The SCNP certification is compromised of two exams: Hardening the Infrastructure (HTI), and Network Defense and Countermeasures (NDC). To become SCNP-certified, candidates must pass both of these Level One exams.
