Course Overview

Employers worldwide are searching for IT professionals with validated skills. With Cisco certifications in hand, you’ll certainly stand out from the crowd.

Cisco Certified Network Associate Security (CCNA Security) validates associate-level knowledge and skills required to secure Cisco networks. With a CCNA Security certification, a network professional demonstrates the skills required to develop a security infrastructure, recognise threats and vulnerabilities to networks, and mitigate security threats.

The CCNA Security curriculum emphasizes core security technologies, the installation, troubleshooting and monitoring of network devices to maintain integrity, confidentiality and availability of data and devices, and competency in the technologies that Cisco uses in its security structure.

Once certified, you’ll be qualified for jobs such as Security Administrator and Network Security Support Engineer, earning an average salary of about £50,000.00 per year (source:, UK Only).
