We've added another google course by Joe Holbrook, Google Cloud Platform: Stackdriver.

Stackdriver monitoring collects metrics, events, and metadata from Google Cloud
Platform, Amazon Web Services (AWS), hosted uptime probes, application instrumentation, and a variety of common application components including Cassandra, Nginx, Apache Web Server, Elasticsearch and many others. Stackdriver ingests that data and generates insights via dashboards, charts, and alerts. We will cover monitoring on both GCP and AWS clouds.

This Routing Protocol Security course was created by Piotr Kaluzny and is 1 hour and 45 minutes long. It consists of multiple videos in which the instructor discusses all relevant theoretical concepts and technologies, (in-depth explanations, whiteboarding) and demonstrates how to implement them on the current CCIE Security v5 lab exam hardware.


Why You Should Watch

Security is no longer just an “important” component of an organization. A constantly increasing number of aggressive cyber criminals launch their attacks not only from the outside, but also inside organizations, making security an inherent component of any modern network/system design.

This course, like all other courses that are part of the “CCIE Security v5 Technologies” series, is meant to teach you Cisco security technologies and solutions using the latest industry best-practices to secure systems and environments against modern security risks, threats, vulnerabilities, and requirements.

 

Who Should Watch

This course is intended for students preparing for their CCNA/CCNP/CCIE security exams. It is also great for experienced Network (Security) Engineers, or Administrators, looking to refresh their knowledge of important network security concepts before moving forward with other certifications.

 

What You’ll Learn

This course will help you understand the different methods used to secure routing protocols in a network infrastructure. The course focuses on EIGRP, OSPF & BGP for IPv4 and IPv6 and includes a discussion on the newest routing security features recently added to the IOS code.

 

About The Instructor

Piotr Kaluzny has been in the IT field since 2002 when he was exposed to networking and programming during his studies. His career in production networks began in 2007, right after graduating with MSc in Computer Science. Piotr quickly progressed his career by working for multiple enterprise and non-enterprise companies in different routing & switching and security roles, with his responsibilities ranging from operations and engineering, to consulting and management.

Since the beginning, Piotr has been heavily focused on the Security track to finally prove his skills in 2009 by passing the CCIE security certification exam (#25565) on the first attempt (he also holds R&S and Security CCNP and CCNA certifications).

Piotr already has an extensive background as a Senior Technical Instructor. For the past several years he has been solely responsible for designing, developing and conducting CCNA, CCNP and CCIE training courses for one of the largest and most respected Cisco training companies in the world.

I greatly enjoy solving complex problems, (who doesn’t?) you know the ones I am talking about! My focus has been in Network Security starting with CheckPoint Firewalls in R65. F5 BIG-IP is a product I spend quite a bit of time with, but as you know, in this industry you must keep learning and growing. My next focus areas are Palo Alto Networks, Ansible automation, F5 Cloud and Automation, and Cisco Firepower. I love what I do, and I am blessed with the many opportunities I have to work with many different clients and networks. I grew up in Northwest Iowa and later moved to the Kansas City area where I lived for 9 years. I decided to get back to my roots and am now living in Northwest Iowa again with my wife and our two boys. Outside of work, I enjoy racquetball, guitar, BBQ, and living with purpose.

Our bootcamps are a great study resource for CCIE candidates. No matter whether you're just starting out on your CCIE training journey, or have been studying for months, an INE bootcamp can help you gauge where you're at in the study process and what you need to focus on before attempting your CCIE Exams.

What is a Bootcamp?

Bootcamps are intensive, live classes that typically last from 5-7 days. Bootcamps allow you to dive further into your study path in a small classroom environment with an in-person, expert INE instructor leading the way. Each bootcamp class will cover a specific list of topics tailored to the Cisco track and certification level you are studying. Our instructors will customize the training to focus on certain topics and technologies that best meet the individual requests of the students in your bootcamp.

What's a Bootcamp Class Actually Like?

In our Written Routing and Switching Bootcamp you will learn about Switching, RIP & EIGRP, OSPF, BGP, MPLS, Redistribution and Evolving Technologies. Our 7 time CCIE, expert-instructor, Rohit Pardasani, will not only help you understand all of the essential R&S topics for this exam, he will also share study techniques and prepare you for what the actual exam environment will be like.

Bootcamp participants will find that our in person classes are laid back, private and comfortable study environments, where questions are encouraged and each student is afforded the attention they deserve. Our small class sizes (less than 20 students per bootcamp) allow our instructors to customize curriculum and focus on the specific needs and requirements of the individuals in your class.

Typically, our R&S Bootcamps run 10 hours a day, with a 1 hour lunch break, and ample snack and coffee breaks to fuel your studying. Each day will be a combination of lectures, instructor-led demonstrations, Q&A sessions, hands-on exercises, and frequent quizzes. Students will also have full access to lab equipment throughout the bootcamp and in the evenings to continue practicing on their own or as groups.

Starting in 2018, our bootcamps will always take place in one of three locations; Durham, North Carolina, Salt Lake City, Utah, or Amsterdam, Netherlands. For those that can't, or don't want to travel, we also offer online live options.

What Our Students Have to Say About the Routing and Switching Bootcamp Experience:

Don't believe INE has the best in-person training? Take it from our students, our bootcamps are the best on the market!

"I would like to thank INE and Rohit Pardasani in particular for the great experience I had. This course has provided me with a good idea on how the CCIE exam should be approached in terms of study and preparation. I will highly recommend this training to anybody that is on the same journey as I am. Also, many thanks to the Coordinator in providing all the information needed and answering my questions, this made everything as smooth as I hoped."
Berry Batist

"I enjoyed Rohit personally. I would look for him if seeking another workshop. The content/material informed and challenged me. I feel better prepared."
