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

for 5 reasons:

  1. Only comprehensive network defense program built to incorporate critical
  2. secure network skills - Protect, Detect, Respond and Predict

  3. Maps to NICE 2.0 Framework
  4. Comes packed with the latest tools, technologies, and techniques
  5. Deploys a hands-on approach to learning
  6. Designed with an enhanced focus on Threat Prediction, Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery


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.

Further Information

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%
