Investigating Network Security Controls
Hi there, and welcome to Pluralsight. Tim Warner here welcoming you to the module entitled Investigating Network Security Controls. Our learning path for the CompTIA Network+ N10-006 exam consists of the following courses. You should know, if you don't already know, that a course is a collection of modules, and in turn a module is a collection of exam objectives. Anyway, the learning path starts with what CompTIA is and study tips for the Network+ test. You might actually, when you finish all the content for the learning path, want to circle back and re-watch that first course. The content itself began with Network Architecture and Network Operations. We're concerned in this current course with Security. The other two courses are Troubleshooting and Standards, Practices, and Theory. The Table of Contents for this Security course is as follows. First, Understanding Network Security Risks and then correlating that to Network Attacks and Threats, Network Vulnerabilities, Hardening a Network, both from the perspective of hardware, principally the network switch, and software. We are concerned in this module with investigating Network Security Controls, in particular, physical security. We then have a module on Configuring a Basic Firewall, Network Access Control, and Basic Computer Forensics. We need to consider physical security here. First of all, understanding exactly what is meant by physical security in an InfoSec context, and second, comparing and contrasting various physical security controls from which we can choose as a network support technician. Let's get started. Our Network+ exam objective here is 3. 4, which states, Compare and contrast physical security controls.
