The Understanding Cybersecurity Operations Fundamentals (CBROPS) v1.0 course teaches an understanding of the network infrastructure devices, operations, and vulnerabilities of the Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) protocol suite. You will learn basic information about security concepts, common network application operations and attacks, the Windows and Linux operating systems, and the types of data used to investigate security incidents. After completing this course, you will have the basic knowledge required to perform the job role of an associate-level cybersecurity analyst in a threat-centric security operations center to strengthen network protocol, protect your devices and increase operational efficiency. This course prepares you for the Cisco Certified CyberOps Associate certification.
