Understanding Cisco Cybersecurity Operations Fundamentals

TheUnderstanding Cybersecurity Operations Fundamentals (CBROPS) 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.

Please note that this course is a combination of Instructor-Led and Self-Paced Study – 5 days in the classroom and approx 1 day of self study. The self-study content will be provided as part of the digital courseware that you will recieve at the beginning of the course and should be part of your preparation for the exam.


After completing this course you should be able to:

Explain how a SOC operates and describe the different types of services that are performed from a Tier 1 SOC analyst’s perspective.
Explain Network Security Monitoring (NSM) tools that are available to the network security analyst.
Explain the data that is available to the network security analyst.
Describe the basic concepts and uses of cryptography.
Describe security flaws in the TCP/IP protocol and how they can be used to attack networks and hosts.
Understand common endpoint security technologies.
Understand the kill chain and the diamond models for incident investigations, and the use of exploit kits by threat actors.
Identify resources for hunting cyber threats.
Explain the need for event data normalization and event correlation.
Identify the common attack vectors.
Identify malicious activities.
Identify patterns of suspicious behaviors.
Conduct security incident investigations.
Explain the use of a typical playbook in the SOC.
Explain the use of SOC metrics to measure the effectiveness of the SOC.
Explain the use of a workflow management system and automation to improve the effectiveness of the SOC.
Describe a typical incident response plan and the functions of a typical CSIRT.
Explain the use of VERIS to document security incidents in a standard format.
Describe the Windows operating system features and functionality.
Describe the Linux operating system features and functionality
