Course description

Are you ready to learn about Enterprise storage security? What about host security? If you said yes, then you are in for a treat. Coming in this course we will dive into the protocols for enterprise storage and the types of storage you can have – even in your small business or home office. We will go over the management of our storage and how we can have replication of our data giving us that fault tolerance and disaster recovery. Once we move from storage we will jump over to our host security. Now it’s time for a discussion on anti-malware, host based firewalls walls and more. This course will cover how to protect your end systems and not just your networks. We are closer to the data now so with host security we have to be extra careful and diligent in our protection. Shutting down unwanted or unneeded services and creating firewall rules are just some of the things you can look forward to in this course.


This course assumes that you have familiarity with information technology, basic networking, and basic security concepts. No scripting or “hacking” experience is required. Having windows command line experience as well as having administrative rights on your machine will be helpful.
