The CND course provides learners with the opportunity to acquire a basic toolkit of skills to secure networks utilizing the latest tools, technologies and techniques. As a unique value add, more than 50% of this course is dedicated to students working in a remote/home environment, with a module dedicated to the Internet of Things (IoT) security.
