Course Description

As broadcast station IP networks have grown and become an integral part of the broadcast technical plant, so have the security threats grown such that network security is an ongoing essential task for the broadcast engineer with IT responsibilities. This webinar series will provide an understanding of IP network security terminology, security plan principals, best practices, proactive implementation techniques, and active security verification. Practical implementation examples utilizing popular network infrastructure equipment will be provided with public domain security assessment tools.

At the conclusion of this webinar series, you should have a fundamental understanding of IP network security principals, an understanding of developing a network security plan for your organization, and best practice implementation approaches. Network security is an on-going IT process and should never be considered a one-time setup and forget process.

It is recommended that persons participating in the Cybersecurity Webinar series have an understanding of IP networking fundamentals that includes OSI model structure, Ethernet switch operation, IP layer three system protocols, TCP 3-way handshake, and the use of port numbers.
