Having recently wrapped up the 5th Annual Cisco SecCon Conference, I’d like to take this opportunity to share with you what Cisco SecCon is and the benefits to our products and you, our customers. With that, let’s start with a brief overview!
What is Cisco SecCon?
SecCon is a security conference for Cisco engineers that focuses on two critical elements for a healthy corporate Security intelligence: 1) expansion of knowledge for all and 2) building a sense of community. We allocate two days for intensive hands-on security training, and then we provide two general session days to discuss a variety of security topics including:
- Cisco Secure Development Lifecycle
- Best practices for security test suites
- Cutting-edge cryptography
- Implementation challenges
- Current threat landscape
- Vulnerability trends
