Traditional information security is no match for the expanding cybercrime
ecosystem; therefore, security measures must evolve to intelligent security
rather than information security. Achieving the Cisco Certified CyberOps
Professional certification elevates your skills to meet that demand and
confirms your abilities as an Information Security analyst in incident
response roles, cloud security, and other active defense security roles.
What does it take to earn this
To earn Cisco Certified CyberOps Professional certification, you pass two
exams: one that covers core technologies and one concentration exam. And
every exam in the program earns an individual Specialist certification, so
you get recognized for your accomplishments along the way.
The core exam focuses on your knowledge of core cybersecurity operations
including cybersecurity fundamentals, techniques, processes, and automation.
The concentration exam focuses on incident response and digital forensics.
Incident response is the process of detecting, responding to, and
eradicating cyber-attacks. Digital forensics is the collection and
examination of digital evidence residing on electronic devices and the
subsequent response to threats and attacks.
