Students learn to manage and configure computers, using various operating systems, to provide critical network services to diverse clients in a secure manner. Security concepts that are vendor neutral and applicable to all system types are discussed; those concepts are then applied to specific systems using various operating systems. The overall objective to configure high standards of system and network security is emphasized throughout. Increased recognition of the need for secure systems and networks has provided significantly increased opportunities for those prepared to work in this field.
