9+ Hours of Video Instruction

More than nine hours of video instruction that includes explanations and demonstrations to prepare you to take the Cisco CyberOps Associate CBROPS 200-201 certification exam.


Cisco CyberOps Associate CBROPS 200-201 Complete Video Course prepares learners to take the CBROPS 200-201 exam. The course starts with the basics of security, including the CIA Triad, various security deployments, threat intelligence, malware, and analysis tools. It then details the various types of attacks and vulnerabilities, and the fundamentals of cryptography and PKI. After a foundation of cybersecurity fundamentals is laid, the course explores security monitoring and data normalization, including the 5-tuple correlation, as well as DNS, web log, deterministic, and probabilistic analysis. It then introduces NetFlow as it specifically applies to cybersecurity and incident response, as well as its various analysis tools. You will learn how to identify the different intrusion event categories and understand the MITRE ATT&CK Framework. The course then gets into the details of digital forensics, including types of evidence and the chain of custody. There are lessons explaining host-based forensics of Windows, Linux, and Mac OSX, as well as a discussion of endpoint security technologies. The course then moves into network intrusion analysis and the various ways to determine whether your system has been attacked before finishing up with "Security Policies and Procedures," and the fundamentals of incident response.

Through detailed exploration, configuration demos, and troubleshooting implementations, this course methodically guides you through the key topics in the exam. Taught by best-selling authors Omar Santos and Ron Taylor, the Cisco CyberOps Associate CBROPS 200-201 Complete Video Course provides full coverage of the certification, so you have the knowledge you need to study for an pass the exam.

Anyone wishing to take the CCNA CyberOps exam would also benefit from viewing this course.

Course Requirements

The video course assumes that the learner has the skills to navigate the user interface of a PC running on Microsoft Window, Mac, or Linux and who has completed typical high school-level math courses (mainly that the reader has been exposed to binary math). The course also assumes that the reader has used PCs connected to either a home network or a network inside a school or company, but that the reader might not understand anything about the network to which the PC was connected. It is also assumed that the reader knows how to use typical Internet applications, primarily web browsers, and email clients.

Lesson Descriptions

Module 1, "Security Concepts," covers the cybersecurity fundamentals, including the CIA Triad, comparing the various security deployments, understanding threat intelligence, malware analysis tools, RBA, and reverse engineering. It then moves into more in-depth concepts such as risk assessment, threats, vulnerabilities, and exploits. The module gets into the details of the access control process and the various types of attacks and vulnerabilities. The last lesson in Module 1 digs into the fundamentals of cryptography and the Public Key Infrastructure, or PKI. The encryption and hashing algorithms are explained, as well as the secure socket layer and digital certificates.

Module 2, "Security Monitoring," starts with the fundamentals: data normalization and the 5-tuple correlation, as well as DNS, weblog, deterministic, and probabilistic analysis. NetFlow as it specifically applies to cybersecurity and incident response is introduced in this module, as well as its various analysis tools. You will learn how to identify the different intrusion event categories, and gain an understanding of the MITRE ATT&CK Framework.

Module 3, "Host-based Analysis," gets into the details of digital forensics, including types of evidence and the chain of custody. It then details more of the host-based forensics of Windows, Linux, and Mac OSX. This module finishes with a discussion of endpoint security technologies, including firewalls, antimalware, antivirus, and systems-based sandboxing.

Module 4, "Network Intrusion Analysis," digs into the various ways to determine whether your system has been attacked, from examining packet captures and protocol headers, to monitoring traffic, and differentiating between true and false negatives. Module 4 will walk you through all the details.

Module 5, "Security Policies and Procedures," covers the security management side of security, including the management of assets, configuration, mobile devices, patches, and vulnerabilities, as well as explaining PII and PHI. The next lesson covers the fundamentals of incident response, including the scope of the plan and processes, how to share information and coordinate with partners, whether your company aligns with the NIST IR categories, and the structures of the incident response teams. Lastly, this module introduces the VERIS Schema and how it applies to incident response.
