To mitigate cyber breaches, many organizations rely on network engineers who protect, detect and respond to the threats on their networks. This online course will prepare you for the Certified Network Defender (CND) exam, a credential that validates your ability to provide continuity of operations during attacks.

The course is ideal for network administrators looking to attain Defense-in-Depth network security preparedness. As a vendor-neutral certification training program, you will work through skills-based, lab-intensive modules based on a job-task analysis and cybersecurity education framework presented by the National Initiative of Cybersecurity Education (NICE).
