Radware course curriculum

In order to fully grasp Radware’s comprehensive capabilities, learners may want to start with a basic cybersecurity course. This can cover concepts such as application delivery, network security, and cloud services. From there, you can develop your cybersecurity skills and apply them within a variety of roles and industries. 

An introductory Radware course curriculum may include topics such as:

  • DDoS attacks: A DDoS attack occurs when attackers flood a server with web traffic to disrupt services. Learners may study different types of attacks and their impact on business, as well as the basics of mitigation strategies such as behavioral DoS, DNS protection, filter protection, and SYN flood protection.

  • Switching and routing: Switching and routing allow devices to communicate with each other and enable interactions between different parts of a network. For example, a firewall scans incoming data and blocks malicious attacks.

  • TCP, HTTP, and HTTPS: TCP, HTTP, and HTTPS web protocols are important building blocks of the internet. Foundational knowledge topics such as HTTPS encryption, TCP/IP model layers, and SSL protocols are important for understanding cybersecurity. 

You can build on the fundamentals you learn in an introductory course in an intermediate-level class, which can provide further insights into concepts, including:

  • Deploying server load balancing (SLB): Server load balancing distributes traffic across multiple servers to ensure no single server is overloaded. By using server load balancing, users can access content quickly and efficiently. 

  • Identifying and mitigating attack vectors: Attack vectors are methods used to enter and exploit vulnerabilities in a system, network, or software. Learners may study common attack vectors, such as social engineering, phishing, poor encryption, or weak credentials.

Radware can be a powerful tool for any cybersecurity professional. edX offers a variety of educational opportunities for learners interested in deepening their cybersecurity and computer science knowledge. A boot camp can provide flexible, hands-on learning for those who want to upskill quickly, while executive education courses are designed to fit into busy professional schedules. You can also pursue a more comprehensive curriculum in a bachelor’s degree program or, for more advanced learners, a master’s degree program. Find the right learning path for you.
