Information Security Risk Management and Business Continuity Planning (HL947S)

Information Security Risk Management and Business Continuity Planning (HL947S)

COURSE OVERVIEW

As we’ve learned, Information Security is ultimately about protecting the assets most crucial to your business through preserving the Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability of your information. In this 3-day course, IT professionals and security officers learn to assess and manage risk in their organization and plan for the unexpected.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Risk management includes recognizing the assets key to your business success, documenting known threats and their likelihood, calculating the impact of a potential breach and implementing specific controls to avoid breaches or minimize the impact if any occur. Further, for those assets, you identify processes to recover from a breach, and explicitly recognize the remaining risk that you choose to accept.

Business continuity and disaster recovery planning extends this by responding when the unexpected happens and preparing to continue conducting business as usual, and as quickly as possible with as little impact on day to day operations. When disaster strikes, how much will it affect your company? Your reputation? Your customers?

In this course, you learn to identify and evaluate risk to your highest priority assets, and also how to design, implement and maintain effective, risk treatment controls.

Creating HP Software Defined Networks (H8D01S)

COURSE OVERVIEW

Creating HP Software-defined Networks is an introductory course to SDN. The course provides an overview of SDN concepts, architecture, network design elements, how SDN-enabled applications can dynamically control network behavior, and how SDN will make deploying new solutions more efficient and less time consuming.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

In this course you will learn how SDN is used in networking environments, and how SDN separates the control and data plane using OpenFlow as the open standard transport mechanism. SDN “use cases” are used to demonstrate how SDN can be used in real-world situations to solve network challenges, and demonstrate the implications that SDN will have on the current and future network designs.

You will learn how to implement the HP VAN SDN Controller into an existing network by installing, configuring and licensing the HP VAN SDN Controller. The Network Protector SDN Application running on the HP VAN SDN Controller enables automated network posture assessment and real-time security across OpenFlow-enabled network devices. In the course you will be installing, configuring and testing this new HP SDN Application during hands-on labs.

At course completion, the learner will have a solid understanding of what SDN concepts, how it works, why it is used, and how the HP VAN SDN Controller can be implemented in an HP network.

This course is approximately 50% lecture and 50% learning activities and hands-on lab exercises.
