In this entry-level Cisco Security training, Keith Barker covers the objectives in the 210-260 IINS exam, which is the one required exam to earn the CCNA Security certification.
Security is one of the most sought-after skills you can have in IT right now — and there are plenty of security certifications you could pursue. If you’re a network administrator working in a Cisco shop, CCNA Security is a good continuation of your networking skills. The Cisco CCNA Security certification is primarily dedicated to securing network infrastructure with Cisco security appliances like Cisco Firepower.
This CCNA Security training is considered associate-level Cisco training, which means it was designed for networking professionals with a strong background in both networking and security. That’s evident in the prerequisites set by Cisco for this exam. Cisco requires passing the CCENT, CCNA Routing and Switching, or CCIE certification before attempting this exam.
After watching this training, you'll not only better prepared to advance into positions that lead to higher-level security engineer roles but also know how to secure your network.
For IT managers, this security training can be used for CCNA Security exam prep, on-boarding new security or networking professionals, or as part of a security training plan.

Who Should Take CCNA Security Training?
This 210-260 IINS course is valuable for new IT professionals with at least a year of experience with security and experienced security technicians looking to validate their Cisco skills.
New or aspiring network technicians. Security is an extremely valuable IT skillset right now. If you’re just starting out, you may be years away from becoming a true security professional, but that doesn’t mean you won’t have security-related responsibilities. This training can serve as invaluable reference material for anyone who has been thrown in the deep end — or if you’re just interested in learning about security measures and firewalls early in your career.
Experienced network administrators. Security professionals often start as network administrators. That’s because networking is the foundation of modern infrastructure. Many threats may be in the application layer, but defense starts at the network layer. Security professionals need to have a broad knowledge of both to be successful. This CCNA Security training covers security concepts, implementation of security measures, firewalls, cryptography, and everything you need to prevent intruders from compromising your systems. Strengthen your cybersecurity arsenal and enter the burgeoning security field with CCNA Security training.
