Network Defence Management: Security Architecture

Coventry University via FutureLearn


Explore the importance of layered defence

It’s important for anyone working in network defence management to understand security architecture, because it allows you to segregate differing trust domains via security devices.

This course will explore anti-virus software, malware protection, cryptographic techniques and applications, intrusion detection systems configuration, testing and maintaining firewalls, access control, network hardening and wi-fi security. You will have the opportunity to grow your understanding of how these elements work together to create a secure network, and how you can apply the theory to real-life situations.

Explore network defence layers

This course explores and analyses various management tools and techniques. You will come to understand that any single defence is likely to fail at some point. That’s why layered defence is necessary.

You’ll look at defining trust domains, zoning, security protection and how to implement security requirements.

Learn how to maintain network defence operations

During the course, you’ll also have the opportunity to study maintenance and response strategies, and explore holistic approaches to network defence management, as well as maintenance, monitoring, resilience and redundancy and testing.

This course is for anyone looking to build their understanding of cyber security and network defence management.
