The Understanding Cybersecurity Operations Fundamentals (CBROPS) v1.0 course teaches an understanding of the network infrastructure devices, operations, and vulnerabilities of the Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) protocol suite. You will learn basic information about security concepts, common network application operations and attacks, the Windows and Linux operating systems, and the types of data used to investigate security incidents. After completing this course, you will have the basic knowledge required to perform the job role of an associate-level cybersecurity analyst in a threat-centric security operations center to strengthen network protocol, protect your devices and increase operational efficiency. This course prepares you for the Cisco Certified CyberOps Associate certification.

Recommended as preparation for the following exams: 200-201 - CBROPS Understanding Cisco Cybersecurity Operations Fundamentals.

Please note that this course is a combination of Instructor-Led and Self-Paced Study - 5 days in the classroom and approx. 1 day of self-study.

The self-study content will be provided as part of the digital courseware that you will receive at the beginning of the course and should be part of your preparation for the exam.

Before taking this course, you should have the following knowledge and skills:

  • Skills and knowledge equivalent to those learned in Implementing and Administering Cisco Solutions
  • (CCNA) course
  • Familiarity with Ethernet and TCP/IP networking
  • Working knowledge of the Windows and Linux operating systems
