Organizational focus on cyber defense is more important than ever as cyber breaches have a far greater financial impact and can cause broad reputational damage. Despite best efforts to prevent breaches, many organizations are still being compromised. Therefore, organizations must have, as part of their defense mechanisms, trained network engineers who are focused on protecting, detecting, and responding to the threats on their networks. Network administrators spends a lot of time with network environments, and are familiar with network components, traffic, performance and utilization, network topology, location of each system, security policy, etc.
