Cisco security courseware now accredited

On August 2nd, 2011, Cisco announced that Cisco(R) security courseware officially met the 4013 training standard for information assurance professionals in federal departments and agencies and that it had been given formal accreditation by the Committee on National Security Systems (CNSS).

The Committee on National Security Systems is a government organization that works with a variety of federal departments and agencies. They are responsible for setting the training standards of information assurance professionals in the government sector and specifying the knowledge, skills and abilities that are needed to carry out their duties.

The CCNP Security certification indicates that students who have completed Cisco(R) Security courseware have shown sufficient ability to plan, implement and verify local and wide-area enterprise networks. It also indicates that the individual knows how to collaborate in an effective manner with people who specialize in advanced security, voice, wireless and video solutions.

Cisco product training is available through a widespread network of official Cisco Learning Partners. The skills learned from the certification coursework are generally required for such enterprise roles as network technician, systems engineer, support engineer, and network engineer.

Jeanne Beliveau Dunn, the general manager of Learning@Cisco, released a short public statement about the achievement. She stated, “This certification from CNSS recognizes Cisco’s ability to deliver end-to-end solutions to government partners with comprehensive products, services and training scaled to meet compliance and security needs.”
