This one-year Riverland program will teach you to design and implement security solutions that can reduce the risk of revenue loss and vulnerability. Your classes will be a combination of hands-on experience, instructor led training and e-learning, just as it is with the current courses offered by Cisco Networking Academy.
There will be particular emphasis on: security policy design and management; security technologies, products and solutions; firewall and secure router design, installation, configuration and maintenance; AAA implementation using routers and firewalls; VPN implementation using routers and firewalls; and how to properly conduct a computer forensics investigation.
This certificate program will help to prepare you for the following network industry standard certifications:
Graduates who succeed in earning the network industry standard certifications noted above will find a variety of good career opportunities.
Job prospects for information security analysts should be good. Information security analysts with related work experience will have the best prospects. For example, an applicant with experience as a database administrator would have better prospects in database security than someone without that experience.
