Cisco SCYBER Training | Securing Cisco Networks with Threat Detection and Analysis Training – Hands-on
The Cisco SCYBER Training | Securing Cisco Networks with Threat Detection and Analysis Training v1.2 combines lecture materials and hands-on labs throughout to make sure you are able to understand cybersecurity concepts and recognize specific network threats and attacks. You will learn how a network security operations center (SOC) works and how to begin to monitor, analyze, and respond to security threats within the network.
This lab-intensive training course prepares you to take the Cyber Security Specialist Certification exam (exam ID = 600-199).
• If you are familiar with some aspects of this Cisco SCYBER Training | Securing Cisco Networks with Threat Detection and Analysis Training course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
• We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the course around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
• If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the course in manner understandable to lay audiences.
The knowledge and skills that a learner must have before attending this course are as follows:
• CCNA equivalent knowledge is preferred
• Basic understanding of Cisco security product features
