CCNA Course Content
Cisco Certified Network Associate Security (CCNA Security) validates associate-level data and skills
needed to secure Cisco networks. With a CCNA (Cisco Certified Network Associate Security )certification,
a network expert demonstrates the abilities required to develop a security infrastructure, acknowledge
threats and vulnerabilities to networks, and mitigate security threats. The CCNA(Cisco Certified Network
Associate Security ) course of study emphasizes core security technologies, the installation,
troubleshooting and observance of network devices to keep up integrity, confidentiality and
availableness of data and devices, and competency within the technologies that Cisco uses in its security
