Common vectors of attack in the world of Information Security include email and web-based attacks. Understanding the nature of these attacks and some of the available Cisco solutions and products designed to mitigate these attacks is critical to existing, and aspiring, network engineers.
This course will introduce you to the nature of common email and web-based attacks, and products designed to mitigate those attacks as covered within the Implementing Cisco Network Security Exam (IINS 210-260). Among the topics covered will be descriptions of mitigation technologies for email-based threats such as SPAM filtering, anti-malware filtering and DLP techniques as implemented within Cisco's Email Security Appliance (ESA) solution. We will also discuss mitigation technologies for web-based threats such as blacklisting, URL filtering and malware scanning as implemented by Cisco's Web Security Appliance (WSA).
