    ... actually I don't quite much understand this statement:
    Two proctored exams (SECFND and SECOPS) within 13 weeks (Optional)
    Do you know what it might be?

    This one has been killing me. I applied for the same scholarship. They have been pushing out the dates on sending people acceptance emails for weeks now. First mid November, then by November 30, and now by December 9. It's a great opportunity for a new InfoSec cert, and it's free and all, but not knowing yay or nay is awful.

    I've been waiting too. The last email I got said I would know by November 15 and I've not heard anything since. Have you been getting updates by email?

    Received email last week that I've been accepted into the second wave of participants, scheduled to start in March.

    Would be very interested to get some feedback from someone in the first group, which apparently started last month.

    https://learningnetwork.cisco.com/docs/DOC-31760

    two doc files with some pictures.

    People need to calm down. This is just another CCNA.....I guess I see it that way because I have been in the Cisco cert game for 10+ years now. Trust me its just another CCNA. You are not losing out on anything, especially if you have your CISSP, CEH, Sec+.....you will be ok without this CCNA lol

    My guess here is if they can install a decent base of people with Cisco CCNA - Cyber Ops certification, companies will start to request employment applicants to have this certification in job postings. Which means people paying to take the course and exam, it's a great way to jump start interest in a new Cisco certification. Without this incentive, it probably take a lot longer before employers require it, which in turn means low sales of there product for years. I also wager that the cost of the course will be a LOT higher then $1,000 when you have to pay for it.
    Still searching for the corner in a round room.

    As far as the CCNA SECOPS and SECFND cert having any relation to their products this is not the case. CCNA Security/CCNP Security/CCIE Security have that relationship and are a strong presence in the industry regarding employees with job duties managing cisco security equipment.

    The only reference of Cisco equipment knowledge out of BOTH CCNA SECFND and SECOPS is the following and its only asking if you know what they do lol
    1.5 Describe the functions of these network security systems as deployed on the host, network, or the cloud:
    • 1.5.a Firewall
    • 1.5.b Cisco Intrusion Prevention System (IPS)
    • 1.5.c Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP)
    • 1.5.d Web Security Appliance (WSA) / Cisco Cloud Web Security (CWS)
    • 1.5.e Email Security Appliance (ESA) / Cisco Cloud Email Security (CES)
    This is just Cisco's version of CEH mixed in with CCNA Security, sprinkled with a small amount of ISC2 security operations and risk management concepts.

    Cudos to all who got in free, but employers are still going to be searching for CEH/Sec+/SSCP/GSEC and other entry level security certs first.
