Overview

Please note: This course's name has changed from 'Cisco CCNA Cyber Ops' to 'Cisco Certified CyberOps Associate'.

On this 6-day accelerated Cisco Certified CyberOps Associate course, you’ll develop the skills to detect cyber security breaches and effectively respond to security incidents.

You’ll be trained by Cisco Certified Trainers who, through our unique Lecture | Lab | Review technique, will take you through key security principles and provide hands-on, practical examples. This technique will help you better retain knowledge and will ensure you are capable of applying your skills to real-life scenarios.

Upon completing this certification you will have:

  • the skills to prepare for more advanced job roles in cyber security operations
  • a basic understanding of Security Operations Centre (SOC) teams including an understanding of the type of metrics used to detect and respond to security incidents
  • an understanding of how to protect your organisation’s information from common attack vectors and endpoint attacks
  • knowledge in security monitoring, including identifying sources and types of data and events.
  • knowledge of how organisations are detecting and responding to cyber crime, cyber espionage, insider threats, advanced persistent threats and regulatory requirements
  • an understanding of security challenges involved with network applications

You'll also be prepared to sit exams 210-250 SECFND: Understanding Cisco Cyber security Fundamentals and 210-255 SECOPS: Implementing Cisco Cyber security Operations. You'll sit these at the Firebrand Training Centre as part of the course, covered by your Certification Guarantee.

This course, which is 40% faster than traditional training, is aimed at Security Operations Center (SOC) Analysts at an associate or beginner level. The certification does require some knowledge of basic cyber security technologies and principles.

Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. Two options of training. Choose between residential classroom-based, or online courses
  2. You'll be certified in just 6 days. With us, you’ll be trained in record time
  3. Our course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  4. Pass first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs
  5. You’ll learn more. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor
  6. You’ll learn faster. Chances are, you’ll have a different learning style to those around you. We combine visual, auditory and tactile styles to deliver the material in a way that ensures you will learn faster and more easily
  7. You’ll be studying with the best. We’ve been named in Training Industry’s “Top 20 IT Training Companies of the Year” every year since 2010. As well as winning many more awards, we’ve trained and certified 75977 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business
