ENSA Course Outline


EC-Council Network Security

Course Description

This course looks at the network security in defensive view. The ENSA program is designed to provide fundamental skills needed to analyze the internal and external security threats against a network, and to develop security policies that will protect an organization’s information. Students will learn how to evaluate network and Internet security issues and design, and how to implement successful security policies and firewall strategies. In addition, they will learn how to expose system and network vulnerabilities and defend against them.


 

 

Who Should Attend

System administrators, Network administrators and anyone who is interested in network security technologies.

  • Duration: 5 days (9:00 – 5:00)

 

 

Certification

The ENSA 312-38 exam will be conducted on the last day of training. Students need to pass the online Prometric exam to receive the ENSA certification.
