This course provides a comprehensive set of skills needed to operate, and customize the ITNCM Compliance solution for ensuring network device configurations meet compliance standards for security and business policy needs. This software package builds on the ITNCM configuration management solution. This course provides students a structured set of topics that cover all aspects of the solution and how it supports network compliance needs. This training provides students access to virtualized servers and network devices and extensive exercises to demonstrate how the solution can develop compliance policies, execute them against the network configurations, and automate the remediation of non-compliant devices. Class work includes enabling and accessing this software and its integration into the configuration management solution, development of customized policies and remedial actions, and the execution of these policies against actual configurations to determine their compliance. Discussions will include compliance theory and how to take business ideals and codify them into actual policies that ensure those ideals are implement in device configurations.
