Webcast: Things I Can Do to Protect My Network from Getting Hacked
Check out this Cisco Support Community webcast, and hear Cisco subject matter expert Jazib Frahim cover some of the reasons why enterprise network segments become compromised despite their state-of-the-art network security technologies and products that are deployed. Do they get compromised because of product or technology limitations or are there other factors that cause the network infrastructure to be exposed to attackers?
Jazib Frahim (CCIE 5459) is a technical leader in the Worldwide Security Services Practice of Cisco's Advanced Services for Network Security. He was previously a technical leader for Cisco's Technical Assistance Center (TAC) Security team, leading engineers in resolving complicated security and VPN technologies. He holds two CCIE certifications, one in Routing and Switching and the other in Security.
