Welcome to the Department of Networking & System Security!

It is my honour today to answer some of your pressing questions like, Who is a Network Security Engineer, What are my chances of getting employed after the course and so on.

Network security engineers are responsible for the provisioning, deployment, configuration, and administration of many different pieces of network and security-related hardware and software. These include firewalls, routers, switches, various network-monitoring tools, and virtual private networks (VPNs). These engineers are a company’s first line of defense against unauthorized access from outside sources and potential security threats. Not only does a network security engineer know how to mitigate any potential threats that become evident, but they also how to strategize and prepare before any security threat is enacted.
Here at OIT, at the successful completion of our course, you will be able to:

  • * Planning, engineering, and monitoring the security arrangements for the protection of the network systems.
  • * Identifying, monitoring, and defining the requirements of the overall security of the system.
  • * Creating different ways to solve the existing threats and security issues.
  • * Configuring and implementing intrusion detection systems and firewalls.
  • * Testing and checking the system for weaknesses in software and hardware.
  • * Maintaining firewalls, virtual private networks, web protocols, and email security.
  • * Configuring and installing security infrastructure devices.
