The modern threat landscape continues to evolve and has become more complex and dangerous than ever before. Risks to the enterprise today include new and emerging attack techniques and vectors, accidental data loss and data theft, an ever-expanding network and cloud perimeter, and regulatory non-compliance penalties and other consequences.
Industry trends such as Bring Your Own Apps/Device (BYOA/BYOD), cloud computing, consumerization, mobile computing, software-defined networking and storage, and virtual data centres further complicate modern network security challenges. As a result, many basic tenets of network security – traditional concepts such as defence-in-depth and perimeter-based security – must also evolve to address these challenges.
London Metropolitan University is the first and only Regional Academy for Palo Alto Networks' cybersecurity courses, which provides official support and training courses to individuals across the UK.
