Threats can wreak havoc on a network, but Cisco’s security solutions will help mitigate them. This course will teach you the threats you need to be aware of, and how to mitigate them by using automating security appliances or Cisco Talos.
There are numerous threats that can negatively impact an organization’s IT infrastructure, regardless if it is hosted in the cloud, or on-premises. In this course, Cisco Core Security: Security Concepts, you’ll gain an understanding of these threats, as well as how to mitigate against them using Cisco Talos or automating security appliances. First, you will learn the different types of threats that exist. Next, you will discover what security intelligence is and Cisco’s solution. Finally, you will explore how to automate various Cisco security devices, such as Firepower Threat Defense. When you’re finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of automating Cisco’s security products needed to protect your network from the latest threats.

Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Craig Stansbury. Welcome to my course, Cisco Core Security: Security Concepts. I'm a network security consultant for my company, StansTECH. There are various threats out there that you need to be aware of, as well as how to mitigate against them. This can be done manually or through APIs that Cisco security appliances have that allow automated access. In this course, we are going to learn about these threats and how Cisco can mitigate them whether that is through security intelligence or automation. Some of the major topics that we will cover include the types of threats out there that can affect organizations whether the devices are located on-premises or in the cloud, what security intelligence is and Cisco's solution for it, as well as how to utilize APIs in order to interact with Cisco's security appliances. By the end of the course, you'll know how to identify threats that can affect your network and mitigate against them using some of Cisco's security tools. From here, continue your learning by diving into Cisco core security with the course's network security with Cisco iOS, describing and configuring VPNs, endpoint protection and detection, and secure network access using Cisco ISE. I hope you'll join me on this journey talking about security threats, their mitigations, and automation with the Cisco Core Security: Security Concepts course, at Pluralsight.
