Network Operations II

Course #CY3602


This course is a sequel to Network Operations I, with a focus on how to deal with network attacks and compromises. The goal is a resilient network that can meet operational and mission needs even in the face of attacks. Students will learn how to detect and respond to attacks and compromises while keeping the network operational to the extent possible. Topics covered include self-assessment through vulnerability and penetration testing, using firewalls and intrusion detection and prevention systems to monitor network traffic and system activity; and an introduction to established processes for cyber forensics and attribution, incident response, and recovery.
