Because so much work is done electronically, businesses and governments generate vast amounts of information, most of which needs to be safe. Security technologies have improved with the growth of data requirements. This course introduces the methods and concepts involved in physically protecting this data. As well, you'll learn about the different server hardening techniques, the different types of network security systems and protocols, as well as logical access control methods. This course also covers how to securely dispose storage and how to implement proper environmental controls in your server room. This course is one of a series in the SkillSoft learning path that maps to CompTIA's Server+ exam, SK0-004, and covers the following exam objectives: 4.1 Compare and contrast physical security methods and concepts, 4.2 Given a scenario, apply server hardening techniques, 4.3 Explain basic network security systems and protocols, 4.4 Implement logical access control methods based on company policy, 4.5 Implement data security methods and secure storage disposal techniques, and 4.6 Given a scenario, implement proper environmental controls and techniques.
