Course Overview
Hi, everyone. My name is Craig Stansbury, and welcome to my course, Cisco Core Security: Content Security was Cisco WSA and Cisco Umbrella. I'm a network security consultant for my company, StandsTECH. Threats that are hosted on the internet continue to wreak havoc on organizations' networks. While it's not feasible to prevent end users from using the internet, in this course, we are going to look at how to use Cisco's web security appliance, as well as Cisco Umbrella to help secure that web traffic. Some of the major topics that we will cover include the key features of both the web security appliance and Cisco Umbrella, how to deploy the web security appliance and configure it to protect your organization's web traffic, and how to configure Cisco Umbrella to protect your organization's web traffic. By the end of this course, you will know how to configure both of these products to secure the web traffic of your organization's users. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with security concepts and network security fundamentals. From here, you should feel comfortable diving in to Cisco security topics with courses on Content Security with Cisco ESA, Securing the Cloud, and Secure Network Access using Cisco ISE. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about securing organization's web traffic with the Cisco Core Security: Content Security with Cisco WSA and Cisco Umbrella course at Pluralsight.
