An important part of any curriculum dealing with Network Administration is the ability to monitor and analyze network traffic. To date, the Network Security courses, MIT420/520, have provided you with in-depth information on network security. MIT641, the Protocol Analysis course, will provide you with information, and hands-on experience using a network protocol analyzer. Together, the learned information will be applied to your Technical Projects course, MIT602, as you complete your graduation requirements.
During your time at St. Clair College, your instructors are providing you with the technical aspects of, and the theory behind, a career in Network Administration. While using a device such as a protocol analyzer, you will have the ability to obtain valuable statistics on network usage and traffic patterns, a vital component of the Network Design Technical Project. Additionally, the protocol analyzer also has the ability to capture all traffic on a network, something students MUST avoid, to ensure the integrity and security of corporate sponsors and their IT environments.
What cannot be measured or tested is the instruction you have received on the ethics required in your chosen field. Through instruction, example, and personal experiences, your instructors have imparted to you a strong sense of what is and is not acceptable behaviour in a business environment.
To reinforce good business ethics and underscore your commitment to ensuring the integrity and security of all computer systems and environments you may come in contact with, it is required that you agree to the following:
