Cisco Network Threat Defense Training at SecTor 2013

- August 22, 2013 - 6 Comments

UPDATE:  Due to low registration numbers for our training, Cisco Network Threat Defense, at SecTor 2013 we unfortunately had to cancel our course.  For those who registered, we appreciate your support and look forward to meeting and delivering the training to you at another venue in the near future.

SecTor 2013, the seventh annual security conference in Toronto, Ontario, CA, will be held October 7-9 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in downtown Toronto. The conference provides an unmatched opportunity for IT and Security Professionals to learn the latest security research and techniques.   My colleague, Joe Karpenko and I will present Network Threat Defense Hands-on Training on October 7.

Our training will help you learn about securely deploying network services and to 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. Once these defenses and countermeasures have been implemented, you will then 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.

Cisco is a proud sponsor, as well as training provider, and can save you 10% using discount code ‘CISCO-2013’ or ‘CISCO-Expo2013’ for a free expo pass! Registering for the full conference also provides an additional $100 discount towards training courses.

Please join us at SecTor 2013 in October. Register soon for discounted pricing. Please reach out with questions and we look forward to seeing you in Toronto!
