Cyber Ops Associate Study Resources

Cisco Cyber Ops is a  specialist certification focused on cyber security operations.   Cyber Security Operations is often associated with network defense and security operations analysts are often members of a blue team. I hold CyberOps Associate certification and Network Academy Cyber Ops Associate Instructor certification.

The Cyber Ops Associate certification is focused on knowledge and skills needed by a Tier 1 security operations analyst and covers much of the IP and TCP/IP basics that are covered in the CCNA certification.

The Cyber Ops Professional certification is focused on knowledge and skills needed to progress to Tier 2 security operation analyst.   Since this role builds on the skills acquired by a Tier 1 analyst; this certification requires that the candidate pass the Associate level exam.

The following are my notes.
