This intermediate How to Troubleshoot Cisco Routers and Control Plane Policing training prepares network admins to take fine-tuned control of which packets are allowed to pass through their network with Control Plane Policing, improving security and efficiency.
A distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack is a brute force approach: send as many packets and requests from as many different sources as possible until the host network seizes up. The reason for performing this malicious attack varies, but depending on the attacker and target, operations can be halted or valuable information extracted. This course teaches how to reduce the likelihood and efficacy of a DDoS attack through troubleshooting your routers and providing control plane policing. It's excellent training for security professionals or network and routing professionals that can keep a network running fast and reliably.
After completing this Cisco training you'll know how to take fine-tuned control of which packets are allowed to pass through your network with Control Plane Policing, improving security and efficiency.
For anyone who manages IT training, this Cisco training can be used to onboard new network admins, curated into individual or team training plans, or as a Cisco reference resource.
