Overview

Firebrand Training Official Cisco Learning Partner

This certification retired on 24th February 2020. Our closest replacement is CCNA.

This accelerated 4-day Cisco CCNA Security course introduces you to core security technologies and concepts.

Through our unique Lecture | Lab | Review technique, you'll be able to develop your own security policies, to protect your IT infrastructure. The course is based on applying security through the features of Cisco's IOS (Internetwork Operating System).

Your expert Firebrand instructor will teach you network security concepts and practices, including how to:

  • Secure routing and switching infrastructure
  • Deploy basic authentication, authorisation and accounting services
  • Deploy basic firewalling services
  • Deploy basic site-to-site and remote access VPN services
  • Describe the use of more advanced security services such as intrusion protection, content security and identity management

The curriculum also covers core security technologies, the installation, troubleshooting and monitoring of network devices in order to maintain integrity, confidentiality and availability of data and devices, and competency in the technologies that Cisco uses in its security structure.

During the course, you'll prepare for and sit exam 210-260 IINS, covered by your Certification Guarantee.

The CCNA Security certification is a required step towards the CCNP Security certification.
