Security Engineering

by Kevin Henry

Engineers are needed to configure and operate Security systems. This course will teach you the concepts of security engineering, thereby increasing your ability to deploy secure information systems that are resistant to failure or compromise.

What you'll learn

Security Engineering addresses the problem of inadequate and incomplete cyber security solutions. The configuration of an integrated and resilient security framework is the goal of this course on cyber Security Engineering.

In this course, Security Engineering, you will learn the use of security models and gain the ability to develop and deploy a robust security solution tailored for your organization.

First, you will learn about the traditional security approaches.
Next, you will discover security challenges with modern technology.
Finally, you will explore how to manage and operate a security program.

When you’re finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of security engineering needed to design and deploy an enterprise-wide security solution.
