SKILL BENCHMARK

Cisco CyberOps Competency

  • 45m
  • 30 questions
The Cisco CyberOps Competency benchmark will measure your ability to recognize key terms and concepts related to key Cisco CyberOps concepts. You will be evaluated on common vulnerabilities, access control models, NetFlow and tcpdump, and network attacks. A learner who scores high on this benchmark demonstrates that they have the skills related to Cisco CyberOps threat detection.
