CCNA Security - Implementing Cisco Network Security (IINS) 3.0

Exam Code: 210-260

Duration: 4 Days

Training Fee: 7,200.00

Course Overview

About this course

CCNA Security is a job role based certification for Security Specialists, Security Administrators, and Network Security Support Engineers. This certification validates skills including installation, troubleshooting and monitoring of network devices to maintain integrity, confidentiality and availability of data and devices and develops competency in the technologies that Cisco uses in its security structure.

Students completing the recommended Cisco training will gain an introduction to security technologies as well as how to develop security policies and mitigate risks. IT organizations that employ CCNA Security-holders will have IT staff that can develop a security infrastructure, recognize threats and vulnerabilities to networks, and mitigate security threats.

Prerequisites

  • Skills and knowledge equivalent to those learned in Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices Part 1 (ICND1)
  • Working knowledge of the Windows operating system.
  • Working knowledge of Cisco IOS networking and concepts.

Upon completing this course, the learner will be able to meet these overall objectives:

  • Describe common network security concepts
  • Secure routing and switching infrastructure
  • Deploy basic authentication, authorization and accounting services
  • Deploy basic firewalling services
