Here at MasterClass, we have designed a Network Defense program that trains network administrators in network security technologies and operations and teaches students how to master the core skills to build a solid cybersecurity skill set.


Students will learn to examine the traffic that traverses networks at the packet and binary level and to build a solid knowledge of the lowest layers of the network. You will learn to master the TCP/IP protocal as well as essential UNIX and Linux survival skills used by security professionals.

This MasterClass program was designed to help you build a solid security foundation along with introducing you to to vulnerability assessment and the hacking methodology so you will be ready to pursue more advanced security training such as the Certified Ethical Hacker.



The Most Robust


The MasterClass Network Defender Program Program includes 2 industry recognized courses:

  • Certified Network Defender (CND)
  • Ethical Hacking Core Skills (EHCS)

Network defense is one of the most critical tasks in Cybersecurity and the Network Defender MasterClass series is designed to not only train you in the tools and skills needed in order to defend your network, but build your foundation in the operating systems, protocols, and techniques of a network defender.

Other programs drop you into a class and expect you to sink or swim, but the Network Defender MasterClass guides you through building the core skills that the Cybersecurity industry demands, leading to more than a Certification. Through hands-on experience and training in UNIX, Linux, Windows, TCP/IP, the command line, and full industry leading Network Defense instruction, you’ll have the confidence to walk into an interview and walk out with a job.

Certified Network Defender

  • In order to maintain the high integrity of our certifications exams, EC-Council Exams are provided in multiple forms (I.e. different question banks). Each form is carefully analyzed through beta testing with an appropriate sample group under the purview of a committee of subject matter experts that ensure that each of our exams not only has academic rigor but also has “real world” applicability. We also have a process to determine the difficulty rating of each question. The individual rating then contributes to an overall “Cut Score” for each exam form. To ensure each form has equal assessment standards, cut scores are set on a “per exam form” basis. Depending on which exam form is challenged, cut scores can range from 60% to 78%.
