CNSS 4013 Recognition
The National Security Agency (NSA) and the Committee on National Security Systems (CNSS) recognized that Cisco security courseware meets the CNSS 4013 training standard. By being compliant, the Cisco CCNP Security certification program provides the required training for network security professionals who assist federal agencies and private sector entities to protect their information and aid in the defense of the nation's vital information resources.
This advanced standard is intended for System Administrators responsible for the security oversight or management of critical networks.
This formal NSA and CNSS certification gives Cisco the authority to recognize those candidates who have demonstrated that they have met the CNSS 4013 training standard.
Candidates who have met the standard will be issued a letter of recognition acknowledging their completion of the related requirements. This letter of recognition can be used as confirmation of having met the CNSS 4013 requirements.
