Implementing IOS Network Security

by jleany - Jul 28, 2010

LearnKey’s Implementing IOS Network Security course featuring Tom Carpenter has been released!

The Implementing IOS Network Security course maps to Cisco’s 640-553 IINS certification. This exam is geared toward individuals who are looking to specialize in security. With a CCNA Security certification, a network professional demonstrates the skills required to develop a security infrastructure, recognize threats and vulnerabilities to networks, and mitigate security threats. The CCNA Security curriculum emphasizes core security technologies, the installation, troubleshooting and monitoring of network devices to maintain integrity, confidentiality and availability of data and devices, and competency in the technologies that Cisco uses in its security structure.

After taking this course, you will be able to recognize and describe the threats facing network infrastructures, you will learn to mitigate threats to your routers using ACLs and you will learn to implement firewalls and VPNs using the Security Device Manager, SDM.

    Today I did a search for Cisco IOS (Internetworking Operating System) Operating System jobs on and there where over 1000 jobs posted looking for this type of skill set. I’d say this is right up high in the job market demand for IT marketings. This certification is HOT! If your making your skills foundations check list for the job market you can’t miss this one. Certified or not this is a top level skill building course and shouldn’t be missed. I think now is the time for everyone to be building your skils level even if you have a job, maybe even more so if you have a job as there may be someone knocking on the back door trying to get in the door with a power packed resume. I know there are alot of professionals out there looking around for jobs. Elearning is such an easy and inexpensive way to gain the knowledge base that is in demand. You never know what the competition is looking like in the job market but if you keep your own skill up you’ll be hedging against the issues in the high unemployment market that we are living in. Don’t say I should, just do it. No one can afford to get rusty right now.
    This is a time to work on sharping the your tool set
