This course was created by Piotr Kaluzny and is 2 hours and 32 minutes long. It consists of multiple videos where the Instructor discusses all relevant theoretical concepts and technologies, (in-depth explanations, whiteboarding) and shows 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 of the organization, 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 not only intended for students preparing to the current CCNA/CCNP/CCIE Security exam, but also for experienced Network (Security) Engineers or Administrators looking to refresh their knowledge on important Network Security concepts before moving forward with other certifications.
What You'll Learn:
By completing this course, you will understand and learn about the different Layer 2 attacks and mitigation techniques, such as attacks on STP and switching infrastructure, Dynamic ARP Inspection, DHCP Snooping, IP Source Guard, Storm Control, Private VLANs or Protocol Storm Protection.
