CCNA Cybersecurity Operations (CyberOPs) is End Of Life (EoF) and It upgrade to CyberOps Associate Course.
Today’s organizations are challenged with rapidly detecting cybersecurity breaches and effectively responding to
security incidents. Teams of people in Security Operations Centers (SOCs) keep a vigilant eye on security systems,
protecting their organizations by detecting and responding to cybersecurity threats. CCNA Cybersecurity Operations
prepares candidates to begin a career working with associate-level cybersecurity analysts within security operations
The Cisco CCNA® Cybersecurity Operations v1.1 (CyberOps) course is designed for Cisco Networking Academy®
students seeking career-oriented, entry-level security analyst skills. Target students include individuals enrolled in
technology degree programs at institutions of higher education and IT professionals who want to pursue a career in
the Security Operation Center (SOC).
CCNA Cybersecurity Operations students should have the following skills and knowledge:
- PC and Internet navigation skills
- Basic Windows and Linux system concepts
- Basic Networking concepts
- Binary and Hexadecimal understanding
- Awareness of basic programming concepts
- Awareness of basic SQL queries
This course aligns with the CCNA Cyber Ops certification. Candidates need to pass the 210-250 SECFND exam and
the 210-255 SECOPS exam to achieve the CCNA Cyber Ops certification.
The course has many features to help students understand these concepts:
- Rich multimedia content, including interactive activities, videos, games, and quizzes, addresses a variety of learning styles and help stimulate learning and increase knowledge retention
- Virtual environments simulate real-world cybersecurity threat scenarios and create opportunities for ethical hacking, security monitoring, analysis and resolution
- Hands-on labs help students develop critical thinking and complex problem solving skills
- Innovative assessments provide immediate feedback to support the evaluation of knowledge and acquired skills
- Technical concepts are explained using language that works well for learners at all levels and embedded
- interactive activities break up reading of the content and help reinforce understanding
- The curriculum encourages students to consider additional IT education, but also emphasizes applied skills and hands-on experience
- Cisco Packet Tracer activities are designed for use with Packet Tracer 7.0 or later.
CCNA Cybersecurity Operations v1.1 covers knowledge and skills needed to successfully handle the tasks, duties,
and responsibilities of an associate-level Security Analyst working in a Security Operations Center (SOC).
Upon completion of the CCNA Cybersecurity Operations v1.1 course, students will be able to perform the following
- Install virtual machines to create a safe environment for implementing and analyzing cybersecurity threat events.

- Explain the operation of the network infrastructure.
- Classify the various types of network attacks.
- Use network monitoring tools to identify attacks against network protocols and services.
- Use various methods to prevent malicious access to computer networks, hosts, and data.
- Explain the impacts of cryptography on network security monitoring.
- Explain how to investigate endpoint vulnerabilities and attacks.
- Evaluate network security alerts.
- Analyze network intrusion data to identify compromised hosts and vulnerabilities.
- Apply incident response models to manage network security incidents.
