CCNA Cyber Ops Certified!

Hey guys,

I passed SECOPS today with a dismal 825, but a pass is a pass. SECFND took 2 tries, I found SECOPS easier.

My advice to anyone taking these exams is to jump right into SECOPS after SECFND, as there is some overlap.

I was in cohort 5 of the scholarship, the exam prep materials distributed by the mentors were critical.

Rock on!

    I'm in cohort 6 also and I'm considering using the e-learning material.

    Thanks. I thought SECFNDD was harder than SECOPS, probably because there is a lot more to cover in SECFND.

    And really the only advice I can give is to pay attention to what the mods say. The curriculum is enough to pass, although you will need a few other sources for SECOPS(REGEX and the NIST docs).

    Overall I really enjoyed the experience.

    The Exam prep material just maps the exam objectives to the e-learning course content.

    I would like to know if cyberops scholarship will grant me if I am a third party customer, partner, vendor, supplier, or service provider, currently doing business with Cisco?

    https://nvlpubs.nist.gov/nistpubs/specialpublications/nist.sp.800-61r2.pdf
    https://ws680.nist.gov/publication/get_pdf.cfm?pub_id=50875

    These 2 NIST documents are central to 210-255 (Sec-Ops), heavy reading though! You _will_ need to know these to pass.
    Other crucial areas; PCI - DSS standard and HIPAA

    https://vwannabe.com/category/cisco/ - Mostly Sec-Fnd (210-250) but some Sec-Ops covered. Very good bite sized answers to most exam blue print topics.

    This should get you started for the next cohort, enjoy. icon_smile.gif
