Hi Everyone,

I was lucky enough to get onto the last Cyber Security scholarship program which I am really enjoying. I passed 210-250 (Cyber Security Fundamentals) last month and in a few weeks will take the 2nd half (210-255 Cyber Security Operations).. If i pass it will give me "CCNA - Cyber-Security" to go with my "CCNA R&S".

My question is...
Has anyone taken the "CCNA Security" exam 210-260 after completing "CCNA Cyber" ?

Ive compared the exam topics and there is plenty that is covered in the Cyber topics.

CCNA Security - https://learningnetwork.cisco.com/community/certifications/security_ccna/iins-v3/exam-topics
CCNA Cyber 1 - https://learningnetwork.cisco.com/community/certifications/ccna-cyber-ops/secfnd/exam-topics
CCNA Cyber 2 - https://learningnetwork.cisco.com/community/certifications/ccna-cyber-ops/secops/exam-topics

Ive also took some of the "Do you know this already" practice tests from the course guide and felt confident on the majority.

I understand that I will have to pay for the one exam, but after having Cyber materials and exams funded (Thankyou Cisco!).
Its not just collecting another cert for the sake of it. Im currently mid way through studying CCNP R&S and future employment appears to favour CCNA Security!

Thanks in advance for any advice.

    there's no such thing as CCNA cyber security. the correct certification name is CCNA Cyber Ops which is geared towards tier 1 SOC analysts. CCNA Security has different requirements that relate more on the secure implementation of CISCO devices such as ASA firewalls, CISCO IOS etc. Something that Cyber OPS didn't go into details.
