Understanding Cisco Cybersecurity Operations Fundamentals (CBROPS), is the replacement for the CCNA Security exam which retired in 2020. The exam code is 200-201 CBROPS. The Cisco Certified CyberOps Associate certification validates your skills and knowledge in security concepts, security monitoring, host-based analysis, network intrusion analysis, and security policies and procedures.
Passing the CBROPS exam will help you to launch your career in cybersecurity, gain an insider’s view into the life of a Security Analyst, and discover the resources to pass the certification exam.
We've broken down the exams into the five syllabus topics, each having 50 exam-style questions. The final test covers all syllabus topics and represents the kinds you will find in the real exam from Cisco.
Security concepts (50 questions)
Security monitoring (50 questions)
Host-based analysis (50 questions)
Network intrusion analysis (50 questions)
Security policies and procedures (50 questions)
All the above topics combined (50 questions)
Each exam covers all the topics within that syllabus item. The Security concepts module, for example, covers the CIA triad, threat intelligence, exploits, access control, attack vectors and statistical detection..
The CBROPS exam costs $400 to sit and the average first time pass rates are well under 50%. For this reason you must prepare by using a quality study guide, doing hands-on labs and taking a lot of practice exams. This is where we come in. You need to getting 95% or higher in EVERY exam before you take the real one.
