On May 29, 2020, Cisco will release, 200-201 CBROPS, an updated, consolidated exam 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. As of May 29, the new exam will be available to earn your certification. 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 second of the two required exams in achieving Cisco Certified CyberOps Associate certification (formerly called CCNA CyberOps) and prepares candidates to begin a career within a Security Operations Center (SOC), working with Cybersecurity Analysts at the associate level.

The SECOPS exam tests a candidate's knowledge and skills needed to successfully handle the tasks, duties, and responsibilities of an associate-level Security Analyst working in a SOC.
