Cisco Live 2014 San Francisco: Security Technology Track

- April 16, 2014 - 0 Comments

Cisco Live, May 18-24, 2014, is quickly approaching and registration is open. This is the 25th anniversary of Cisco Live and we return to the Bay Area at San Francisco’s Moscone Center. Educational sessions are organized into technology tracks to make it easy to find the topics that most interest you. With network and data security being top of mind, I’d like to highlight the Security technology track’s exciting content lineup.

Hands-on Labs

There are six 4-hour or 8-hour labs providing hands-on experience, moderated by Cisco experts, in the Security technology track:

  • LTRSEC-2014 — Basic Network Threat Defense, Countermeasures, and Controls
    In this instructor-led lab, attendees will learn about inherent security features and techniques on Cisco IOS Software, including Management Plane hardening, Infrastructure Access-lists, and Data Plane hardening. Attendees will acquire hands-on experience configuring and testing these inherent security features and techniques in simulated real world threat scenarios.
  • LTRSEC-2015 — Advanced Network Threat Defense, Countermeasures, and Controls
    In this instructor-led lab, attendees will perform the role of a Security Incident Response Investigator and must correctly detect, classify, and prevent threats targeting a network by configuring and deploying advanced threat defenses and countermeasures, such as Control Plane Policing, IOS NetFlow, and Remotely-Triggered Black Hole (RTBH) Routing on network infrastructure devices.
  • LTRSEC-2050 – IOS FlexVPN Lab
    In this instructor-led hands-on lab, we will examine various FlexVPN deployment configurations, including site to site, remote access, hub and spoke, dynamic spoke to spoke partial mesh, different redundancy options, and IPv6 integration.

    This is a deep dive hands-on lab session where attendees will work with the practical aspects of deploying Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA) clusters and troubleshooting connectivity issues with the adjacent network infrastructure devices.
