The presentations and videos from the 2013 conference are available for review.
Cyber-attacks continue to increase in complexity and threaten the availability of every network and their endpoints, yet security professionals and network engineers may not realize the security benefits that can be obtained by leveraging the infrastructure to detect, classify, and respond to these attacks.
No matter who's networking devices you use, in this instructor-led hands-on training course, attendees will learn to plan and securely deploy network services such as NTP and SNMP and correctly detect, classify, and prevent threats targeting a network. You will use Cisco network devices to configure and deploy advanced IPv4 network threat defenses and countermeasures such as infrastructure access control lists, network traffic flow monitoring, and Remotely-Triggered Black Hole (RTBH) Routing on network infrastructure routers and firewalls.
After these defenses and countermeasures are implemented, attendees will validate the effectiveness of the defenses and adjust them to changing network conditions and attack profiles. This will help you to verify, measure, and update your defenses for real world threats such as the recent Financial Services, SpamHaus, and OpUSA Denial of Service Attacks.
Attendees must bring a laptop with wireless internet connectivity, working web browser, telnet client, the ability to view PDF files, edit text files, and view MP4 and MPG videos. The laptop must be able to install and run the provided Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client (used for SSL VPN access to the remote training lab).
This training track is open for all conference attendees.
