What is Network Security?

Network security covers many technologies, devices, and processes. It refers to a set of rules and configurations designed to protect the integrity, confidentiality, and accessibility of computer networks and data.

Sound network security controls are recommended for organizations to reduce the risk of an attack or data breach. These measures also enable the safe operation of IT systems. Network security consists of hardware and software technologies and is ideally composed of layers that include applications, antivirus, access management, servers, firewalls, physical access, and policies.

EC-Council’s Certified Network Defender is the Worlds First Network Security program with an Adaptive Security Strategy: 1. Protect 2. Detect 3. Respond 4. Predict. C|ND is mapped to the NICE 2.0 framework, ANSI/ISO/IEC 17024 accredited and also listed as a baseline certification in US Department of Defense (DoD) Directive 8570.
