Guide to Strategic Infrastructure Security is the first of two books that are required for Level One of the Security Certified Program (SCP). This book maps clearly to the exam objectives for the current Security Certified Network Professional (SCNP) exam. Designed to help students develop beyond the Security+ certification, this book provides a solid foundation in network security fundamentals but assumes familiarity with basic concepts. This book focuses on how to protect a range of different operating systems against attacks, how to develop more effective security strategies, and how to handle emergencies. Case Projects and Hands-On Projects help readers practice their new skills, and expose them to the day-to-day duties of a security professional.
