CCNA CyberOps

Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) Cyber Ops will provide you with the knowledge and skills needed to work with a Security Operations Centers (SOC) team and can be a valuable part of beginning a career in the exciting and growing field of cybersecurity operations.

Today's organizations are challenged with rapidly detecting cybersecurity breaches and effectively responding to security incidents. Teams of people in SOC’s keep a vigilant eye on security systems, protecting their organizations by detecting and responding to cybersecurity threats.

By the end of the course, you will be prepared to:

  • Understand cybersecurity operations network principles, roles and responsibilities as well as the related technologies, tools, regulations and frameworks available

  • Apply knowledge and skills to monitor, detect, investigate, analyze and respond to security incidents

  • Apply for entry-level jobs as Associate Security Analyst and Incident Responder

  • Take the Understanding Cisco Cybersecurity Fundamentals (SECFND) certification exam (210-250) and Implementing Cisco Cybersecurity Operations (SECOPS) certification exam (210-255) leading to the Cisco CCNA Cybersecurity Operations certification

CCNA CyberOps is a hands-on, career-oriented course with an emphasis on practical experience to help you develop specialized skills to successfully handle the tasks, duties, and responsibilities of an associate-level Security Analyst working in a Security Operations Center (SOC). It is approved for inclusion in the US Department of Defense (DoD) 8570.01-M for the CCSP Analyst and CSSP Incident Responder categories. 

Cisco realizes that Security Operations Center (SOC) Analysts increasingly must focus on design, configuration, and support responsibilities as the technical consultant and device specialist or expert on a security team. Therefore, the curriculum is specific to the best practices of network security administrators, engineers, and experts using the latest Cisco equipment, devices, and appliances.

All hands-on labs in the course are performed by remotely accessing CCNAS NETLAB+ pods comprised of Cisco Catalyst Switches (Ios 15.x), ASAs (ASA 9.x and ASDM 7.x), ISR G2 devices (IOS 15.x), and virtual PCs. 

Note: This hybrid-delivered course offers the benefit of flexible learning. Participants have access to an expert instructor with full online content delivery and hands-on labs involving fewer in-person class meetings. Select the time and place to go online to access the course knowing you have an instructor who is there to answer questions that arise.
