    To increase your interview chances, may want to think about CCNA Security, which is more focused on the technical aspects of enforcing security policies. My favorite topic is how to setup and manage IPSec.

Are any Cisco technologies used in this cert (i.e. ASA)? Other than the VMs what else should be added to a lab setup?


    Thanks!
    Hi jjones618. I'm sorry it took so long to respond. I haven't been on TE for a while. Anyway, we spent a lot of time on Security Onion and Wireshark. We didn't do anything (as I recall) with Metasploit. We had to know the different attacks and how to spot them using these tools. We had to know the various packet headers and what could be changed in the headers to carry out attacks. I hope that helps. Best of luck to you!

    I submitted for the same scholarship, but unfortunately I didn't hear anything back as far as getting accepted lol
    I was curious what you thought about the Cyber Ops vs CCNA Sec. I am currently working towards my CCNA R/S, but after I want to go into Sec, but I have been studying the Cyber Ops and some people are saying to just study CCNA Sec. Any advice?

    Grats on the Cert

    mr.comfortably, I can't compare the 2 certs because I haven't taken the CCNA Sec class. However, I'm wondering if Sec might be a more sought-after cert at least for now. I haven't seen many job listings for CCNA Cyber Ops yet but it might just be a matter of time. I imagine Cisco knows this will be a need in the immediate future or they wouldn't have designed a cert to train on it. Maybe you could check job posts in your area. Also keep checking with Cisco to see if they open up the scholarship again. Good luck!

    First off, congrats on CCNA CyberOps. It's one of my goals in the near future.

    As far as the other poster's question goes about CCNA Sec vs CyberOps, they have completely different career paths in mind. The CCNA Sec is for someone who wants to be a network security admin, setting up appliances and firewalls. This kind of job specialty you'll likely only find at larger companies, although the knowledge can still be useful in a small environment where you have to do a little bit of everything. The CCNA CyberOps is for someone who wants to be a SOC analyst, examining packets and flows on a dashboard. Two very different certs. For someone who wants to work in the security field, CyberOps will be more valuable by far. CCNA Sec, ironically, is more for someone already in the networking field who's moving to specialize in security appliances.

    This is a good explanation of differences between the two certs. I finally received a response from Cisco about the next cohort. I still think CCNA carries a better RIO compared to something like CSA+

    I hope it gets added to DoD 8570 soon.

    @geekychick Hi, congrats for your new certification. Could you please review the official CCNA:CyberOps guides? I have read some bad reviews about nonsense in there and I would like to know whether is it actually worth of money. Is it good book which I can use for learning for exam AND the quality is high enough so I can read it even in 5 years and I will not cry how full of bullshit is it. Thanks a lot.
