Our Next Meeting - Wednesday

Topic: Secrets and shortcuts on becoming an EXPERT! (Virtual Labs: GNS3, EVE-NG, and others)
NOTE: PLEASE BRING YOUR LAPTOP WITH GNS3 and
EVE-NG downloaded so we can go through the
There are no shortcuts on becoming
an expert and it’s not a secret.
Most of the IT elite spend countless
hours in the lab. In the late '90s,
that meant spending thousands to set
up an environment with 5 devices,
information came only in the form of
books and publications, and if you
ran into an unfamiliar environment
you had to rely on your mentors.
Over the past 20 years, IT has
evolved and continues to evolve. The
way we learn should mirror the
advances made in IT. Today,
information is available at your
fingertips on your mobile device,
mentors post their knowledge on
YouTube for free. All that is left
is continued education in your lab.
This session will be all about using
modern lab tools starting with a
simple free setup, evolving into a
complex hybrid lab environment.
We will be looking at GNS3, VIRL,
EVE-NG, Cisco dCloud, Cisco Devnet
Sandbox, AWS, Azure. Most of these
options or even combinations will
provide free or low-cost environment
that will fulfill any lab demand.

Our Last Meeting - Wednesday
December 5, 2018
Evaluating the Cybersecurity Landscape & Building a Defense In Depth Security Architecture
Cyber threats are more pervasive and more
pernicious than ever before. At the same time,
navigating the increasingly complex ecosystem of
solutions without the necessary talent to
protect business infrastructure remains a
difficult task. As security talent continues to
be scarce, businesses need orchestration,
simplification and integration as well as
options for managed security services.
Let’s take a look at how we can build a
defense in depth architecture leveraging the
Cisco Security portfolio. We will highlight
the top threat vectors and one by one
position Cisco Security offerings to defend
against threats that enterprises are faced
with in the ever-evolving security
