Webcast Archive: Security Fundamentals and the Current Threat Landscape

Presented by Omar Santos

Security has become more complex than ever, as the motives and capabilities of threat actors continue to evolve while allowing the miscreants to often stay at least one step ahead of those of us in the network security space. In addition, the concept of location of data is becoming blurred by concepts of cloud computing, contentdata networks, and global load balancing. As we strive to empower employees around the world with ubiquitous access to important data, it is increasingly important to remain constantly vigilant about protecting data and the entities using it (individuals, businesses, governments, and so on).

In this free live webcast event from our friends at Pearson IT Certification, Omar Santos covers the fundamental building blocks of network security (implementing and improving), an essential topic that you are ready to master now that you better understand its importance, and which can help you when preparing for the CCNA Security exam.
