    What do you mean by a Cisco security degree?

    FYI - This thread should be moved into the Cisco section as it currently sits in ISC2.

    The plot thickens. I just realized it's tagged GIAC SANS. Waiting on OP to clarify the intent. No sure if if the topic is Cisco, SANS, degrees, certs, Win95, Novell, or what.

    Just looked at Cisco's latest offerings, didn't see anything that resembles a "degree", just the same security specialties available in 2019. Very much doubt Cisco would wish to go into accredited education. Just look at the trouble SANS has had with acquiring proper accreditation.

    Oh wait I see this is roger1's and only post on the board. Apologize for passing out a troll cookie.

    Probably an honest question from someone outside of the industry. Based on the spelling, could be third world, and the user saw some schools advertising cyber security degrees while advertising brand names (cisco, microsoft, comptia, etc). 

    If OP was still interested we would need more information to help him. Like where did he see this information about a cisco cyber security degree? and maybe we can start to unpack this and help him to figure out his path.

    I was wondering what Uni. was, it's either the University of Northern Iowa, or someone too damn lazy to type out the entire word University. Well you have to admit it has a Lot of letters in it. 
    Still searching for the corner in a round room.
