Computer networks are groups of interconnected computers that share resources. These include widely distributed groups, like the Internet as well as smaller groups, like those found at a university, workplace, or inside a home.
Computer networking professionals are trained to understand how these groups of computers work, how they can be configured and reconfigured to meet different needs, and how to secure them against outside intruders or data theft.
