Understanding Cisco Cybersecurity Fundamentals v1.0 (SECFND)

Understanding Cisco Cybersecurity Fundamentals v1.0 (SECFND)

Overview

Duration: 5 days

The Understanding Cisco Cybersecurity Fundamentals (SECFND) course gives you foundation-level knowledge of common security concepts, basic security techniques, and the fundamentals of applications, operating systems, and networking used in a Security Operations Center (SOC). This course helps you learn to find threats within a real-life network infrastructure using a variety of popular security tools. Through expert instruction and hands-on experience using enterprise-grade security tools, you will learn the basics of network and security concepts, endpoint attacks, cryptography, analysis, and monitoring. This course provides introductory knowledge for those interested in entering the field of cybersecurity and is the first of two courses that prepare you for the Cisco® CCNA® Cyber Ops certification.

Today’s cybersecurity professionals need to detect, investigate, and respond to a wide variety of security events. This course will help you gain the skills to play a role in your organization’s SOC detecting and responding to security events.

The United States Department of Defense recognizes Cisco CCNA Cyber Ops certification as an approved baseline certification in the Information Assurance (IA) Workforce CCSP Incident Responder and CCSP Analyst job categories. Please see Cisco CCNA Cyber Ops and the DoD Approved 8570 Baseline Certifications for more information.
