Cisco Security Event Tuesday November 15th – Second Session Added!

**Due to overwhelming demand Cisco has changed their plans and graciously agreed to hold a second Cisco Security session in the afternoon.  The content is identical for each session**

Security is the hot topic these days.  If you have attended one of our most recent Tech Talk or SYSOP sessions, you have heard Bob speak about the growing threat to our networks from advanced malware traversing the Internet.   As he's mentioned, we all need to “up our game” and add new tools to our arsenals to better protect ourselves from these rapidly emerging threats.   The old faithful perimeter firewall is no longer enough to protect us from what is coming.

To help you with this, the CSI is pleased to invite you to an informative seminar on November 152016.  Experts from CSI and Cisco will introduce you to several exciting new tools that you can place in your tool box to better understand and protect your network.  Some of these tools include:

  • Cisco Stealthwatch –  Learn how to gain complete visibility to everything going on in your network.  With this tool you can gain in-depth insight into everything going on across your network and quickly baseline normal behavior. It's then much easier to pinpoint when something looks suspicious.  Stealthwatch automatically detects anomalous network and user behaviors. It can identify malware, distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, advanced persistent threats (APTs), and insider threats.
  • Cisco OpenDNS – Combating Ransomware - .  Learn how to block Ransomware’s ability to phone home and start wreaking havoc in your network.  We’re often asked, “How do you stop this latest malware threat?”  While preventing infections is the ideal answer, no tool can achieve 100% prevention. The delivery (e.g. email) and infection (e.g. executable) are just the first few steps of Ransomware’s multi-stage cyber-attack
  • Cisco Next-Generation Firewall with Firepower Services - Learn how Cisco FirePOWER Services will change your expectations of firewall protection.  You can meet the industry’s first adaptive, threat-focused next-generation firewall (NGFW) designed for a new era of threat and advanced malware protection. Cisco ASA with FirePOWER Services delivers integrated threat defense for the entire attack continuum - before, during, and after an attack.
