Security Specialist

Most networks are vulnerable to malicious attacks and accidental damage, unless they are secured with a comprehensive security system. Unsecured networks can leave sensitive and personal data exposed to hackers and malicious attacks. The goal of network system security is to keep the network and its resources running and safe for all legitimate users.

Star Expert Security Specialist (SESS) is a comprehensive certification program that helps learners acquire a fundamental understanding of the basic components of network security, critical for securing any network from threats and attacks. The program explains security vulnerabilities associated with different operating systems and networks, cryptography techniques, Intrusion Detection System and its management, VPN, hacking techniques and tools, incident response system, and forensic and digital evidence concepts associated with policing the network systems for attacks.
