Security Certified Network Professional SCNP

The Strategic Infrastructure Security course picks up right where Tactical Perimeter Defense leaves off. The second course in the SCP line-up leads to a certification of Security Certified Network Professional (SCNP). It will give a network administrator the additional hands on skills needed to protect their network from the inside out. This course teaches you about prevention techniques as well as giving the candidate an understanding of risk analysis and security policy creation in a blended technology environment. The up-to-date security lessons and intense, hands-on labs bring a real world network security to training candidates.
