IINS - Implementing Cisco IOS Network Security 3.0

5 days
Please contact FMC to schedule.

Course Description

In this course, you will learn about the design, implementation, and monitoring of a comprehensive security policy, using Cisco IOS security features and technologies as examples. You will also learn about security controls of Cisco IOS devices as well as a functional introduction to the Cisco ASA adaptive security appliance. Using instructor-led discussion, lecture, and hands-on lab exercises, this course allows you to perform basic tasks to secure a small branch office network using Cisco IOS security features, which are available through web-based GUIs (Cisco Configuration Professional) and the CLI on Cisco routers, switches, and Cisco ASA appliances.
