Securing Cisco Networks with Threat Detection and Analysis

Session Detail:    Virtual 5 Day

The Securing Cisco Networks with Threat Detection and Analysis (SCYBER) v1.0 course is a 5-day instructor-led training. This lab-intensive, five-day training course prepares students to take the Cisco Cyber security Specialist certification exam and enables them to function effectively as security analyst team members. The course combines lecture materials and hands-on labs throughout to make sure that students are able to understand cybersecurity concepts and recognize specific network threats and attacks. This course is designed to teach students how a network security operations center (SOC) works and how to begin to monitor, analyze, and respond to security threats within the network. The job role for a security analyst varies from industry to industry, and private-sector roles differ from public-sector roles.
