As networks grow and interconnect with other networks, including the Internet, those networks are exposed to a greater number of security risks. Not only does the number of potential attackers grow along with the size of the network, but the tools available to those potential attackers are always increasing in terms of sophistication. In this Module, you will be aware of Network Topology, Cybersecurity and its components, and the various threats targeting the security of your network, surveillance, and physical security systems.
