Take your first steps in your career in software development! Development, Security, and Operations (DevSecOps) is a deep
dive into the foundations of network operations by using the lens of security to tie it all together. Hands-on and simulation-based
activities in this course assist with implementing network operations with software development and cyber security concepts.
Students will see how culture, automation, and platform design integrates security as a shared responsibility throughout the
entire IT lifecycle. In this course, you will learn about the OSI Model and how that model allows IT to function across Software
Development, CyberSecurity and Network Operations. Specifically, you will learn the principles and structure of IP addressing,
LAN and WAN specifications, and network management. This course encompasses 2 additional college classes (6 college
credits) in order to prepare the student for the CompTIA IT Fundamentals+ Certification Exam. Learn information the tech
industry needs for high-demand, high-wage tech careers. Students interested in the MIC CyberSecurity early bachelor degree
program must enroll in this course and Advanced Network and Cyber Concepts.
