INCVDO - Cisco CyberVision Deployment and Operation

Cisco Cyber Vision Deployment and Operation, is a 3-day instructor-led course. Security is every enterprise’s top priority in today’s connected world and keeping enterprise architecture secure will protect business values and outcomes. Thus, a critical element to the success of any network is ensuring and maintaining security – it’s a need that is applicable to all networks and network devices, including those that power Cisco Internet of Things technologies and solutions. In an effort to simplify cybersecurity and increase device visibility within systems utilized by our IoT customers and partners, Cisco introduces Cisco Cyber Vision – a software cybersecurity solution for Operations Technology (OT). This course uses Cisco Validated Designs (CVD) to build a foundational understanding of the potential security threats impacting todays IoT Extended Enterprise and IT – OT integration using Cyber Vision. The goal of this course is to help the student understand the types of attacks, the types of targets and the tools available to protect the Industrial IoT architecture and to use Cyber Vision to keep the IoT infrastructure safe. Practical skills will be achieved using real-world scenarios and examples in a lab developed for such a purpose.

Cisco Cyber Vision provides organizations the ability to gain visibility into industrial environments including full details of what assets are on the network, how those assets are communicating, and application level understanding of operational information. As a result, Cisco Cyber Vision provides views and capabilities, including integrations, that can be leveraged by security teams, IT infrastructure teams, and operational teams to ensure system integrity and protect against cyber risks.
