Understanding Cisco Cybersecurity Fundamentals (SECFND)

The 210-250 SECFND exam has been retired as of May 29, 2020.

210-250 SECFND

Certification: Cisco Certified CyberOps Associate

Duration: 90 minutes (55 - 65 questions)

On May 29, 2020, Cisco will release an updated, consolidated exam (200-201 CBROPS) that will replace the two current exams (210-250 SECFND and 210-255 SECOPS). If you've already passed one of the current exams, keep going, because the current exams will be retired on May 28, 2020. If you finish certifying on the current exams before the updated exam goes live, you will earn CyberOps Associate certification.

Exam overview

This exam is the first of the two required exams to achieve the Cisco Certified CyberOps Associate certification (formerly called CCNA CyberOps) and is aligned with the job role of an associate-level Security Operations Center (SOC) Security Analyst.

The SECFND exam tests candidates understanding of cybersecurity’s basic principles, foundational knowledge, and core skills needed to grasp the more advanced associate-level materials in the second required exam, Implementing Cisco Cybersecurity Operations (SECOPS).
