Defensible Security Architecture and Engineering

This course is designed to help students build and maintain a truly defensible security architecture. There will be a heavy focus on leveraging current infrastructure (and investment), including switches, routers, and firewalls. Students will learn how to reconfigure these devices to better address the threat landscape they face today. The course will also suggest newer technologies that will aid in building a robust security infrastructure.
