Network Architecture and Security
Program OverviewThis course will introduce students to the protocols and technologies that enable computer-to-computer communications across local area networks (LANs), wide area networks (WANs), and the global internet, from the physical mediums used to carry the signals up to the applications enabling the communications.
Key ObjectivesStudents will learn about networking protocols, technologies, and design best practices. The course will cover how these protocols work together to facilitate end-to-end communications across the disparate mediums and technologies that exist in the myriad of member banks. Students will leave the course with a tangible takeaway to use as a resource to address related risks to the bank.
