In this course, students will learn the aspects of operating systems (chiefly Linux and Windows Server 2016/2019). Students will then build on their virtualization skills from Network Security Fundamentals (CC-008 CyberSecurity 1) and better understand the virtualization concepts of enterprise environments, cloud concepts and cloud management.
Topics will include cloud implementation (for on-site, private clouds) to cloud and workload selection; configuration, migration, and security; basic concepts of application security and access control (identity, authentication, authorization, auditing, accounting). Throughout the class, security concepts learned in Level 1 are employed in the design and implementation tasks and are the basis for more advanced security processes needed in enterprise network, cloud networks and in cyber security projects. Practice management and continual service improvement are taught throughout the lessons.
