Certified Network Defender (CND) is a vendor-neutral, hands-on, instructor-led comprehensive network security certification training program. It is a skills-based, lab intensive program based on the security education framework and work role task analysis presented by the National Infocomm Competency Framework (NICF) as well as a job-task analysis and cybersecurity education framework by the National Initiative of Cybersecurity Education (NICE). The course has also been mapped to global job roles and to the Department of Defense (DoD) job roles for system/network administrators.
The program prepares network administrators how to identify what parts of an organization need to be reviewed and tested for security vulnerabilities and how to reduce, prevent, and mitigate risks in the network. CND covers the protect, detect, respond and predict approach to network security.
Learn about hackers and cyber defense strategies required in today's critical infrastructure. EC-Council has reviewed the entire CND space as designated by the Department of Defense as IAT I, II, III and IAM I, II, III as well as the NICE Framework KSA’s as they relate to cyber defense and day-to-day cyber operations. With each of these considered, they built their exam blueprint, overall training scope, and got to work building the next certification we believe will be a game changer for cyber security professionals – Certified Network Defender.
The class is a professional level introduction to the cyber defense strategies needed in today's critical infrastructure.
This course includes one exam voucher for the CND - Certified Network Defender exam (312-38).
