Interested in UCSEC (Implementing Cisco Unified Communications Security)?

Interested in Cisco’s new course on securing Cisco UC networks, better known as – UCSEC or Implementing Cisco Unified Communications Security?

This course is conducted by various Cisco Learning Partners and focuses on security of Cisco UC network, from an end to end point of view. This course is comprehensive and covers almost all major aspects of Cisco UC security. I haven’t taken the course myself ( I should be teaching it 🙂 ) however, on first impression from table of contents, the course ware will help you understand the topics covered during the ILT course.

However, to gain more insight and build on real world security model – ground up you need a guide and a reference which you can take with you in those grilling sessions with customer and use during design, implementation, consulting, maintenance, or during discovery milestones of the project.

You guessed it right! You need – Securing Cisco IP Telephony Networks which will guide you through various stages of building, deploying, and maintaining a secure Cisco UC solution. This book is your true companion, guide, and reference to learning and implementing Cisco UC Security.

So, if you are planning to take UCSEC course, be sure to pick up your copy of Securing Cisco IP Telephony Networks and use it as a reference, as a text, as a guide, and as a companion.
