Cisco CCNA Security (210-260 IINS) FAQs: Cost, Training, Value
The best candidates for this course are relatively new networking professionals who need specialized knowledge with Cisco network security tools and technologies. This course provides a lot of information about cybersecurity at a fairly junior level. It's an excellent stepping stone to future, more advanced cybersecurity training and jobs.
Technically, no, this training no longer prepares you for a valid certification. The course was designed to help learners pass Cisco's CCNA Security exam (210-260), but Cisco retired that certification altogether and replaced it with a more generalized CCNA. The material on the course remains valid cybersecurity knowledge though.
You'll be well-prepared for the security portions of Cisco's CCNA after this course and even some of the CCNP Security exam will be easier too. The cybersecurity configurations and concepts will also help you with CompTIA's Security+ – but it's vendor-agnostic so you'll need to do additional preparation beforehand.
You should take this CCNA Security training to get a deeper than usual understanding of the configurations and settings you can deploy on a Cisco network to keep it secure. It'll no longer lead directly to a certification, but you'll be a highly competent security technician.
