Cisco Certified CyberOps Professional (CCCP)

Achieving the Cisco Certified CyberOps Professional certification proves your advanced skills as a senior analyst, in a security operation center (SOC) and incident response roles, cloud security, and other active defense security roles.

To earn a Cisco Certified CyberOps Professional certification, you pass two exams: one that covers core technologies and one concentration exam. And every exam in the program earns an individual Specialist certification, so you get recognized for your accomplishments along the way.

The core exam focuses on your knowledge of core cybersecurity operations including cybersecurity fundamentals, techniques, processes, and automation.

The concentration exam focuses on incident response and digital forensics. Incident response is the process of detecting, responding to, and eradicating cyber-attacks. Digital forensics is the collection and examination of digital evidence residing on electronic devices and the subsequent response to threats and attacks.
