Cisco Partner – Cyber Awareness Webinar

Cisco – Cyber Awareness Webinar

The moment we think of Cybersecurity, the first word that comes to mind for most of us is the dreaded or enticing “HACKER.” Guess what? There is more, much more. During this session, we will spend 40 min to discover what job roles you could get by taking Netacad cybersecurity courses as well as the threats you will be fighting during a career in security.

We will show you real exploitation and walk you through different career paths ranging from decision makers in a security operation center to forensic specialists that reverse engineer attack behavior. All attendees will receive access to a hands on attack and defend lab to continue their education in cybersecurity.
