New or aspiring security technicians. If you're a new security technician, this Security and Risk Management training can help illustrate one of the more "academic" aspects of network security. Network security is more than making sure devices are properly configured or passwords are well-made. Network security depends on planning out a security strategy that balances what tools can speed up or enhance the network with the risks that each tool brings with it. If you want a career in making those plans, this training is for you.
Experienced security technicians. If you've been working in the field of network security for a few years already, you're probably familiar with the approaches to balancing network functionality with risks. If you're ready to move into the phase of your career where you think about and help contribute to the planning around that balance, rather than enact someone else's plan, this Security and Risk Management training will give you the tools and vocabulary to participate in those conversations and help advance your career.
