The course will take a hands-on approach to introduce students to the different network defenses that exists to block, mitigate, and detect cyber-attacks. Firewalls, intrusion detection systems (IDS), and network sniffers are just some of the tools that students will learn to deploy and configure in a live lab environment. Additionally, time will be spent learning how to analyze data to make conclusions about the network that is being monitored and actively attacked.
