Up To Date Curriculum

If you run any Linux distribution (operating system), also known as a distro or flavor, and handle all of the setup and maintenance, you have at least been introduced to Linux administration. Operations such as the addition of a printer, Network Interface Card (NIC), or any other hardware are administrative.
A network security administrator is an individual that manages, monitors and administers security over one or more computer networks. A network security administrator primarily ensures that a network is secured from any internal or external security threats and incidents.
