The objective of this tutorial is to examine the elements involved in establishing and maintaining security for a network, and building understanding and familiarity with the operations.

Device and network infrastructure security is examined with a focus on establishing robust, stable, and secure networks and protecting the data and processes that occur.

The tutorial also covers the nature and structure of network attacks and the motivation that drives such online malicious activity, including: tools used in modern attacks, who is behind them, and their impact. The course further examines the actions and processes that can be used to identify, mitigate, and respond to such attacks.
