A network’s security is only as strong as the security of its individual systems. Before connecting individual computers to the network, you need to ensure that the computers are secured using proper security mechanisms. This level of security will help you overcome any potential issues that might occur otherwise. Unsecured systems can result in compromised data and, ultimately, lost revenue. Identifying the appropriate steps and measures you can implement to protect your systems and keeping your resources and revenue safe from potential attacks is a key aspect of securing systems on your network. This course explores security in wired and wireless environments. This course prepares the learner for the CompTIA Network+ 2012 certification exam N10-005. Network+ is sometimes referred to as N+ or Net+.
