Integrated Threat Defense Investigation and Mitigation (SECUR202)

Course Overview

The Cisco Integrated Threat Defense Investigation and Mitigation (SECUR202) course is an instructor-led, lab-based, hands-on course offered by Cisco® Learning Services. The overall course goal is to enable students to identify, isolate, and mitigate network threats using the Cisco Integrated Threat Defense solution platforms. This course is the second in a pair of courses covering the Cisco Integrated Threat Defense solution.

This course will introduce students to network threat investigation and then reinforce student learning through a series of lab scenarios designed to identify relationships between the Cisco products and the stages of the attack lifecycle.
