Why study this course

The CND certification program focuses on training Network Administrators to protect, detect, respond to, and predict threats on the network. This builds upon the typical knowledge and skills of Network Administrators in network components, traffic, performance and utilisation, network topology, system locations, and security policies.

What’s new in CND V2? The updated CND V2 includes the Adaptive Security Strategy, increasing scope from the former Protect – Detect – Respond to Protect – Detect – Respond – Predict strategy.

CND V2 has a dedicated focus on loT Security exposing learners to various security challenges that loT devices pose and the measures required to mitigate them.

It allows students to implement Software-Defined Network (SON), Network Function Virtualisation (NFV), OS Virtualisation, Containers, Dockers, and Kubernetes used in modern day networks

The new CND program also has a special focus on mobile security measures and covers enterprise mobile device security and access control security strategies much deeper than its predecessor as they are extremely relevant in a mobile enabled enterprise. A CND professional shall be trained to ensure that end points in their organisation do not pose a security risk. Increased focus on cloud security with enterprise cloud security, AWS security, Microsoft Azure security, Google Cloud Platform security.

CND includes an introduction to threat intelligence, in-depth attack surface analysis, and business continuity and disaster recovery concepts.

More than 50% of the CND v2 program is dedicated to practical skills in live ranges via EC-Council labs covering domains like Network Defence Management, Network Perimeter Protection, Endpoint Protection, Application and Data Protection, Enterprise Virtual, Cloud, and Wireless Network Protection, Incident Detection and Response, and Threat Prediction.
