Cisco refreshes advanced security training portfolio
Cisco published the new Cisco Firepower Threat Defense NGFW course and updated the two courses on Snort – Network Intrusion Detection & Prevention System.
Cisco Learning Services (CLS) security training portfolio consists of advanced courses on network and data security. They provide thorough, hands-on, and relevant skills and knowledge that enable organizations to set up strong defense mechanisms against modern security attacks. The portfolio covers multiple layers of security, helping organizations enhance security and manage risks, ensure business continuity, and improve customer experience.
Cisco recently announced an update to the CLS security portfolio by introducing the new Securing Networks with Cisco Firepower Threat Defense NGFW (FIREPOWER200) course and updating two courses that help businesses support and maintain their Snort-based systems: Securing Cisco Networks with Snort Rule Writing Best Practices (SSFRULES) and Securing Cisco Networks with Open Source Snort (SSFSNORT).
Check out the detailed course descriptions for more information on which latest technical advancements the update covers:
- Securing Networks with Cisco Firepower Threat Defense NGFW (FIREPOWER200) course introduces the basic next‑generation intrusion prevention system (NGIPS) and next‑generation firewall (NGFW) security concepts. The course then leads you through the Cisco Firepower system. In addition to learning about other powerful features, you also become familiar with Firepower Threat Defense configuration, in-depth event analysis, and NGIPS tuning and configuration. The course covers the latest platform features as well: file and malware inspection, security intelligence, domain awareness, and more.
- Securing Cisco Networks with Snort Rule Writing Best Practices (SSFRULES) course focuses exclusively on the Snort rules language and rule writing. Starting from rule syntax and structure to advanced rule-option usage, you will analyze exploit packet captures and put the rule-writing theories learned to work by implementing rule-language features to trigger alerts on the offending network traffic.
- Securing Cisco Networks with Open Source Snort (SSFSNORT) course teaches you how to build and manage a Snort system using open-source tools, plug-ins, and the Snort rule language to help manage, tune, and deliver feedback on suspicious network activity. This course combines lecture materials and hands-on labs to ensure you are able to construct a solid and secure Snort installation and write Snort rules using proper syntax and structure.
