Cisco Certified CyberOps Professional Certification and Training

Protect, detect, and defend against cybersecurity threats

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.

To earn a Cisco Certified CyberOps Professional certification, you pass two exams: one that covers core technologies and one concentration exam. Certify your CyberOps skills and demonstrate the knowledge in cybersecurity.

Exams and recommended training

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.
