The only true blue team network defense program!

Cybersecurity now dominates the priorities of every enterprise striving to adapt to a post-COVID

world. Forced to go remote, their workers’ identities and devices are the new security perimeter.

In fact, cybersecurity for business is now as critical as internet access itself.

The only program built for the world’s largest work-from-home experiment!

Studies and news reports had demonstrated that cyber attackers are quick to attack the new,

unprotected threat surfaces created when millions of employees started working from home.

Providing network security to such an unprecedented, distributed ecosystem in this postpandemic

world is every Network Defense Team’s acid test.

The Certified Network Defender v2 program has been upgraded and loaded with battle-ready

ammunition to help Blue Teams defend and win the war against network breaches. Individuals

and corporations looking to strengthen their Network Defense Skills will find CND v2 a must-have

Test and Certification

In order to maintain the high integrity of our certification 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 guidance of a committee of subject matter experts.

This approach ensures our exams offer academic difficulty, as well as "real world" applications.

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 adheres to

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 85%

Further Information

An Adaptive Security Strategy – Protect, Detect, Respond, and Predict

Cybersecurity is a continuous, non-linear process. Therefore, your approach to mitigating

cyber risks cannot be static. This is particularly important when the new "normal" has millions

of employees working from remote locations on fragile, home-based WiFi networks and nonsanitized

personal devices.

According to Gartner, traditional "prevent and detect" approaches are inadequate. Opportunistic

by nature, malicious actors look for the easiest ways to attack the most users and siphon off

the maximum gains. Developing a continuous Adaptive Security Cycle helps organizations stay

ahead of cybercriminals by creating and improving security systems. Enter CND v2.

Created based on a thorough job task analysis

CND v2 is based on the cybersecurity education framework and work role task analysis presented

by the National Infocomm Competency Framework (NICF). The program is also mapped to the

Department of Defense (DoD) roles for system/network administrators as well as global work

roles and responsibilities laid out by the revised NICE Framework 2.0

Adaptive Security Strategy

CND v2 includes the Adaptive Security Strategy, thereby increasing the scope from

Protect – Detect – Respond to Protect – Detect – Respond – Predict.

Increased Lab Time and Hands-On Focus

More than 50% of the CND v2 program is dedicated to practical skills in live ranges

via EC-Council labs covering domains like Network Defense Management, Network

Perimeter Protection, Endpoint Protection, Application and Data Protection,

Enterprise Virtual, Cloud, and Wireless Network Protection, Incident Detection and

Response, and Threat Prediction.

A Dedicated Module on IoT Security

IoT security, previously ignored, is now an issue of great concern. IoT devices are

not primarily designed with security in mind. This leaves serious vulnerabilities

while configuring IoT devices in a network. CND v2 introduces candidates to the

various challenges that IoT devices pose and the measures required to mitigate


Network Virtualization Practices for the Remote Workforce

Tracking security applications and configurations of remote work environments

as workforce span across servers is very difficult. The CND v2 program teaches

candidates to implement and manage the security of virtualization technologies

Network Virtualization (NV), Software-Defined Network (SDN), Network Function

Virtualization (NFV), OS Virtualization, Containers, Dockers, Kubernetes used in

modern-day networks.

An Upgrade on Mobile Security Measures

Research firm Gartner predicts that by 2021, 27% of corporate data traffic will

bypass perimeter security and flow directly from mobile and portable devices to

the cloud. With the CND v2, you will learn Enterprise Mobile Device Security, Redefine

Access Control Security, and other platforms to ensure that this endpoint remains


Enhanced Focus on Cloud Security

While the adoption of cloud computing in organizations has increased, so have

the challenges. Candidates will learn different ways to ensure security across

various cloud platforms - AWS, Microsoft Azure Cloud, and Google Cloud Platform.

An Introduction to Threat Intelligence

Having a proactive approach to security is the new requirement of all organizations.

Without threat intelligence, your cybersecurity posture is only reactive. CND v2

helps you take a more effective, proactive approach using threat intelligence.

In−Depth Attack Surface Analysis

The key to cyber risk management is in-depth attack surface analysis. CND v2 trains

you to identify what parts of your organization need to be reviewed and tested for

security vulnerabilities, and how to reduce, prevent, and mitigate network risks.

Includes the Latest Technology

CND v2 covers the latest technologies such as Software Defined Network (SDN)

security, Network Function Virtualization (NFV) security, container security, docker

security, and Kubernetes security.
