Cisco Tech Huddle – Addressing the full attack continuum


Security savvy Cisco enthusiasts unite! The new Tech Huddle event series is just around the corner. The focus will be Cisco Security, with a comprehensive “Before-During-After” overview of the full attack continuum, i.e. the life-cycle of an attack from start to finish, including the possible aftermath.

Before, During, and After an Attack Whitepaper by Gartner/Cisco

Before: You’ll learn how to provide secure access to your data centre and remote resources using the Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) combined with Cisco TrustSec.

During: Uncover the secrets of phishing and familiarise yourself with the latest methods, tricks and techniques used by attackers. You’ll also learn about why traditional detect and block technologies fail against phishing, and what you can do to protect your systems.

After: What happens when malware protection fails? Learn how to identify attacks, evaluate damages and respond to incidents with Cisco’s Advanced Malware Protection tool.

Besides the three 45-minute presentations, you’ll also see some live demos and have the chance to exchange ideas, experiences and practical tricks with your peers through interactive discussions.

To wrap everything up there'll also be a Q&A, where Cisco experts will answer all your questions.  In addition, you’ll have the chance to win an iPad mini, when attending the Cisco Tech Huddle.
