What You Can Expect
To provide staff new to UNIX with an extensive insight into all issues connected with security in a UNIX environment. Whilst this course covers many aspects of the UNIX
operating environment itself, network security is considered to be a separate issue.
Who Should Take This Course
Security administrators, auditors and others who need to understand all aspects of security in a UNIX environment. This course assumes no prior knowledge of UNIX.
Attendees should be IT literate with a good understanding of similar topics in another operating environment.
The course is highly interactive and consists of theory with plenty of hands on practical content. A dedicated server will be used so that the more complex commands and security administration utilities can be practised in the security of a classroom environment.
