Begin a Career in the Rapidly Growing Field of Cybersecurity
Cybersecurity operations jobs play a key part of securing information systems through the monitoring, detecting, investigating, analyzing, and responding to security events, thus protecting systems from cybersecurity risks, threats, and vulnerabilities. Cybersecurity operations jobs are also among the fastest-growing roles in IT, as organizations set up security operations centers (SOCs), and establish teams to monitor and respond to security incidents.
The CCNA Cyber Ops certification program provides a valuable first step in acquiring the knowledge and skills needed to work with a SOC team, and can be a valuable part of beginning a career in the exciting and growing field of cybersecurity operations.
Understanding Cisco Cybersecurity Fundamentals provides you with an understanding of network infrastructure devices, operations and vulnerabilities of the TCP/IP protocol suite, basic information security concepts, common network application operations and attacks, the Windows and Linux operating systems, and the types of data that are used to investigate security incidents. After completing this course, you will have the basic requisite knowledge to perform the job role of an entry-level cybersecurity analyst in a threat-centric security operations center.
This course focuses on the introductory-level skills needed for a SOC Analyst at the associate level, such as understanding basic threat analysis, event correlation, identifying malicious activity, and how to use a playbook for incident response. You will learn how a Security Operations Center (SOC) functions and gain the introductory-level skills and knowledge required for success.
The CCNA Cyber Ops certification prepares students for beginning and associate level roles in cybersecurity operations centers and focuses on security principles and technologies, using Cisco security products.
