What is Computer Network Defense? Computer Network Defense (CND) is a set of procedure and securing measures that use computer networks to detect, monitor, protect, analyze and defend against network infiltration resulting in service or network denial, degradation and disruptions.
CND will acknowledge against an unauthorized activity, for instance within the Department of Defense (DoD) or Ministry of Defense (MinDef) information systems and computer networks. The unapproved activity may consist of disruption, denial, degradation, destruction, exploitation, or access to computer networks, information systems or their contents, or theft of information.
For a use case, CND allow a government or military institute and organization to protect and also reciprocate against network attacks carry out by malicious or adversarial computer systems or networks. Fundamentally, CND is a form of cybersecurity and information assurance evaluate for securing military and government information systems from alarming cyber attacks and interruption.
The goal of CND is to assure that no unapproved, illegal or mischievous traffic user or application is given access to a confidential IT environment/network. This can provide safety in the computer networks that free from any threatening cyber related problems.
CND also is part of Computer Network Operations or CNO. CNO is a series of network that the operations aimed at protecting, manipulating and infiltrating enemy computer systems and network. Additionally, CND is also a component of the DoD’s/MinDef’s operational security framework NetOps.
