This entry-level Cisco Certified CyberOps Associate training prepares network engineers to take the 200-201 CBROPS exam, which is the one required exam to earn the Certified CyberOps Associate certification.
Building or developing networks without a strong underlying knowledge of security principles is like designing a car without a good understanding of vehicle safety. For example, if a car designer didn't understand how quickly cars need to slow down to avoid collisions, or what happens to tires in the rain to give them less traction, they'd make an unsafe car. If a network engineer doesn't understand network security monitoring tools or what the kill chain is, they'll design unsafe networks.
If it's your job to maintain or build networks, getting training as a Certified CyberOps Associate helps make sure you know what makes a network inherently safe and secure, allowing you to build better networks that are more resilient to hostile actors and breaches. Learn the principles of sound network security and have safer networks with this Certified CyberOps Associate training.
For anyone with network engineers on their team, this Cisco training can be used for 200-201 CBROPS exam prep, onboarding new network engineers, individual or team training plans, or as a Cisco reference resource.
Certified CyberOps Associate: What You Need to Know
This Certified CyberOps Associate training has videos that cover topics such as:
- Fundamentals of cryptography and how to use it
- Well-rounded understanding of the security flaws in the TCP/IP
- Recognizing and identifying patterns of suspicious behavior
- Security Operations Centers, their operation and purpose
- Workflow management systems and automation that can be used to improve security effectiveness
Who Should Take Certified CyberOps Associate Training?
This Certified CyberOps Associate training is considered professional-level Cisco training, which means it was designed for network engineers. This Cisco security skills course is valuable for new IT professionals with at least a year of experience with security best practices and experienced network engineers looking to validate their Cisco skills.
New or aspiring network engineers. If you're a brand new network engineer, learning sound network security principles could be the difference between a long, successful career and a short one. While there are many things that will make you a great network engineer, there are few things that'll make you a worse one than designing a porous, unsecure, vulnerable network. Avoid that career-ender with this training.
Experienced network engineers. Most network engineers reach that point in their career by passing through other jobs lower on the ladder. The best network engineers carry forward all the lessons and tricks of the trade they learned earlier in their career and apply it to engineering resilient, efficient networks. If you've been working as a network engineer for several years, make sure part of the knowledge you're bringing forward is an understanding of network security fundamentals and the basics of how Security Operations Centers function.
