Security is too often discussed as an afterthought (sometimes after a major incident such as ransomware), rather than considered as an essential IT Service that enables business to enacted reliably and with agility. The most productive way to start a security discussion with customers is to lead with the Business Outcomes that Cisco’s security solutions can offer. The Delivering Business Outcomes through Security Workshop enables Cisco and Partner AM’s to position Cisco security solutions as an initiative to deliver effective Business Outcomes. It is an interactive workshop, focused on selling Cisco security solutions, in which the students work through different aspects of a case study to identify the key business opportunities, potential solutions and the associated security risks, e.g. ransomware, data theft, etc. Using this information, students form a proposition, positioning Cisco security solutions to deliver positive Business Outcomes and meeting the customer’s business objectives.
