Cisco CCNP Security Training
Video training course for the new Cisco CCNP security certification.
Cybersecurity is the practice of protecting systems, networks, and programs from digital attacks. Polls show that hacking attacks and data breaches are the number one concern of every business owner when it comes to business threats. These cyber attacks are usually aimed at accessing, changing, or destroying sensitive information; extorting money from users; or interrupting normal business processes.
Implementing effective cybersecurity measures is particularly challenging today because there are more devices than people, and attackers are becoming more innovative. This is why there is a huge call for qualified cyber security engineers and Cisco lead the field in this area.
Passing the CCNP Security certification exams proves your skills with advanced security solutions. In order to certify you must pass two exams: one compulsory that covers core security technologies and one security concentration exam of your choice, so you can customize your certification to your technical area of focus.
The core exam code is 350-701 SCOR and is required for the CCIE Security track and also certifies you as as Cisco Certified Specialist – Security Core. Once you pass this exam you can attempt the CCIE Security Lab.
CCNP Security Exams
The SCOR exam covers the below areas in detail:
- Network security
- Cloud security
- Content security
- Endpoint protection and detection
- Secure network access
- Visibility and enforcement
For the second exam we have chosen the below from the seven possible options because it offers the best employment opportunities.

There are prerequisites for you to take the CCNP Security exams however we strongly recommend you have experience working as a network security engineer or take the CompTIA Security+, Cisco CyberOps Associate and Certified Ethical Hacker courses alongside or before this course.
CCNP Security certified engineers average salaries are $113k per year but this will depend upon experience, location and other certifications of course. Holding the CCNP Security certification will dramatically increase your earning potential and chances of being hired as it's considered a top tier qualification. Passing the exams demonstrates you have a strong understanding of network security concepts and procedures but also have hands-on skills essential to hardening networks from attackers and data breaches.
CCNP Security engineers can configure AAA, SNMPv3, VPN, Cloud Logging, Web and Email Security, 802.1X Security and more depending on the optional exam chosen.
