A certificação CCSP (Security) foi recentemente atualizada. Segue, abaixo, nota oficial da Cisco.

Network security is one of the fastest growing areas in IT careers today.

“Despite the importance that 73% of IT managers place on security skills, just 57% also said they believed their IT employees were proficient in such skills, which represents a gap of 16% difference between the skills IT organizations need and those they have in place,” according to a Feb 2008 Network World article.

Earning the Cisco CCSP certification gives IT professionals the skills they will need to successfully implement and manage a secure IP network. It validates advanced knowledge and skills required to secure Cisco networks. With a CCSP certification, a network professional demonstrates the skills required to secure network infrastructures and applications—to manage IT risks, mitigate threats, and meet corporate compliance goals.

What’s New to CCSP

The Securing Networks with PIX and ASA (SNPA) exam is now replaced and extended by the Securing Networks with ASA Foundation (SNAF) exam and Securing Networks with ASA Advanced (SNAA).

In addition, the Securing Networks with Cisco Routers and Switches (SNRS) exam and Implementing Cisco Security Monitoring, Analysis, and Response System (MARS) exam have also been refreshed. Corresponding courses became available on 15-Sept-2008 through authorized CiscoLearning Partners.

Cisco has continued to work closely with the US National Security Agency (NSA) to ensure that certification training directly maps to the 4011 and 4013 standards. 4011 is the training standard for Information Systems Security (INFOSEC) for associate-level IT professionals and 4013 is the standard for more experienced IT professionals.

The updated CCSP program and new exams will continue to provide 4011 and 4013 letters of recognition signed by Cisco CEO, John Chambers. The criteria to receive a recognition letter are as follows:

  • 4011 – CCNA Security certification comprised of first attaining a CCNA certification and then passing the associate level Implementing Cisco IOS Network Security (IINS) exam.
  • 4013 – CCSP certification comprised of passing three defined core exams (SNRS, SNAF, IPS) and one of three elective exams (SNAA, MARS, or CANAC) after attaining the prerequisite CCNA Security certification.
