Overview

The average cyber-attack can cost an organisation over £10,000 a day and attacks can last for over a month.

Protect your organisation by learning how to detect and eliminate costly security vulnerabilities without additional infrastructure investment. On this 3 day Cisco Cyber Security Specialist course you’ll learn how to monitor, analyse and respond to security threats within a network.

You’ll also gain an understanding of the following cybersecurity topics:

  • Network log analysis
  • Detecting & investigating security incidents
  • Reacting to an incident
  • Post-event activity

Get the Cisco Cyber Security Specialist certification and you’ll be able to identify mobile security vulnerabilities before they can harm your business, customers and reputation.

You’ll experience actual cyber-attacks in real time in a lab-based environment and use a broad range of systems like Lancope, Splunk, OSSIM and Observium.
