Course Overview

Introduction:

This course covers advanced topics in Computer Networking such as Software-Defined Networking (SDN), Data Center Networking and Content Distribution

Program Objectives:

To understand the implementation, design principles and goals of a Computer Network and touches upon the various routing algorithms used in CN (such as link-state and distance vector).

Who Should Attend?

  • Security personnel who are currently tasked with assessing the technical risks of cloud computing
  • Network and systems administrators who currently manage private clouds or need to leverage hybrid and/or public cloud services
  • Technical auditors and consultants who need to gain a deeper understanding of cloud computing and security concerns
  • Security and IT managers who need to understand the risks of cloud computing and advise business management of the risks and various approaches involved
