Cisco IINS 1.0: Network Security Principles II
This course is included in our On-demand training solution.
Operations security concerns the day-to-day practices necessary to first deploy and later maintain a secure system. As an administrator, it’s very important to understand the principles behind operations security. It’s equally important to know that the security policy that’s developed in your organization drives all of the steps taken to secure network resources. In order to create an effective security policy, it is necessary to do a risk analysis in order to maximize the effectiveness of the policy. Also, it is essential that everyone is aware of the policy, or it is doomed to fail. This course explains the principles behind operations security and how correct practices increase security, including security testing, a secure life cycle, and business continuity planning. In addition, it reviews how increasing network security threats demand comprehensive network security policies, and describes the main activities in each phase of a secure network life cycle. Implementing the Cisco Self-Defending Network strategy by enhancing the existing network infrastructure with Cisco technologies, products, and solutions is also covered. This course is one of a series from the IINS 1.0 SkillSoft learning paths which cover the objectives for Cisco exam 640-553 IINS 1.0.
