The objective of this workshop is to examine the key concepts, protocols and the policies involved in establishing and maintaining security for a network, and building an understanding and familiarity with their operation. Device and network infrastructure security is examined with a focus on different layers to establish a robust, stable and secure network and protect the data and processes that occur in the network.

The workshop also looks at the nature and structure of network attacks and the motivation that drives such on-line malicious activity.

The course further examines the actions and processes that can be used to identify, mitigate and respond to such attacks.
