Network security is a complicated job, historically only it is a mandate of experienced and qualified experts that can deal with it.
Towards network security comes Vulnerability assessment of the key network assets for which security is ensured. However, as more and more people become agitated, there is a need for more lethargic people who can understand the basics of the network security world.
