Security Happenings at Cisco Live U.S.
Come learn from the best in threat defense
Throughout the year, you hear us talking about our innovative security strategy – about how integration, automation, and simplification make your security posture better. We highlight the need for a new approach to security in a multi-domain world. An approach that securely connects any user, on any device, on any network, to any application.
Next week is your chance to join us for interactive sessions, professional networking, and hands-on demos to find out where your security stands. Whether you discover that you’re on the right track, or that you have a long way to go, our security events at Cisco Live San Diego will provide valuable insight to take your security to the next level. And you will have some fun in the process!
Below are the major security activities happening at Cisco Live from June 9 – 13 at the San Diego Convention Center.

Insightful Security Sessions
Today’s dynamic threat landscape demands a security strategy that focuses on the threat itself more than simply prevention. Cisco security solutions provide threat-centric protection that spans the entire attack continuum – before, during, and after an attack. And we cover you wherever threats get in – from edge to endpoint and beyond.
Cisco Security will present over 160 sessions at Cisco Live. Check out the Cisco Live security page to plan your schedule for the week. Our security sessions, labs, and technical seminars will help you take a holistic approach to security and stop more threats faster.
If you’re interested in these sessions, be sure to book them now. They fill up fast!
We know that 160+ sessions is a lot. See the end of this post for 10 recommended crowd-pleasers!
World of Solutions
Don’t forget about the show floor as a treasure trove of valuable information and experiences. The World of Solutions is the energetic core of Cisco Live, where you’ll have the chance to learn about the latest innovations from Cisco and our partners, and connect in one amazing space.
Spend some time in the Cisco Showcase and Security Village to get up close and personal with Cisco and partner technologies. Attend expo sessions, see live demos across our security portfolio, network with your peers, and kick back a little. Also be sure to stop by the Duo Security area to learn about Cisco Zero Trust, charge up your devices, and zone out on some games.
Are you struggling with more remote users, more cloud apps than you can count, and network decentralization? Come see our Cisco Umbrella team at The Park to find out how they provide a first line of defense for securing users anywhere they access the Internet.
Meet the Expert/Engineer
Consistently rated as one of the highest value programs at Cisco Live, these meetings give you the opportunity to set the agenda for a 1:1 conversation with a Cisco expert. Visit the “Meet the Engineer” desk on site to schedule a personalized discussion focused on your unique questions and challenges.

10 Recommended Security Sessions
Make sure you review the full agenda of security sessions to choose what’s right for you. But if you don’t know where to start, here are some suggestions:
- Talos Insights: The State of Cyber Security
Monday, June 10 | 1:00 – 2:30 p.m.
Cisco’s Talos team specializes in early-warning intelligence and threat analysis for maintaining a secure network. In this talk, we will perform deep analysis of recent threats and see how Talos leverages large datasets to deliver product improvements and mitigation strategies.

Products and services are converging. Attend this session and walk away with the knowledge you need to approach today’s dynamic threat landscape with confidence.
- Cisco SD-WAN Security from the WAN to Cloud Edge
Wednesday, June 12 | 8:00 – 9:00 a.m.
WAN transformation increases your exposure to a range of internal and external threats that were previously handled by your data center security. We’ll learn more about these threats and why a combination of on-premises and cloud security is a must-have for your IT team.
- Endpoint Security, Your Last Line of Defense
Wednesday, June 12 | 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.
With the proliferation of advanced malware, and the endpoint being the target of the vast majority of attacks, security on the endpoint is more important now than ever. This session will dive into the arsenal of Cisco endpoint security products.
- Behind the Perimeter: Fighting Advanced Attackers
Wednesday, June 12 | 4:00 – 5:30 p.m.
Unlike defending against automated and predictable infections that we see every day, dealing with advanced adversaries can be a painful experience. Our goal is to derive a series of principles that make such attacks expensive to mount, maintain, and cover.

Thursday, June 13 | 8:00 – 10:00 a.m.
Office 365 has become a popular choice to consume Microsoft’s email, voice, and file sharing applications. Due to changes in the consumption of applications, we need to think differently about how to secure our networks, endpoints, and users.
- Workload Security and Visibility
Thursday, June 13 | 9:30 – 10:30 a.m.
Modern applications no longer just reside within a company’s physical data center, but are also deployed across a multi-cloud environment. As a result, customers must now rethink their approach to data center security and workload protection as the available attack surface and opportunity for data theft has expanded.
- Risky Business: Help Reduce Risk by Gaining Visibility and Control of Cloud App Usage
Thursday, June 13 | 1:00 – 2:30 p.m.

- The Future of Security Analytics
Thursday, June 13 | 1:00 – 2:30 p.m.
What does it mean to deliver superior security analytics? Join Cisco Distinguished Engineer TK Keanini to explore security analytics in its entirety: reviewing new forms of telemetry, analytical techniques, and the mistakes and shortcomings of the past so that we don’t make them again in the future.
