CCNA Security – 210-260 IINS passed..

15 05 2016

Passed the 210-260 last weekend. I was obviously pretty happy about this, but, what I was even more happy about was the updated syllabus for the cert.

I would estimate around 30-40% difference in content. The general security concepts (which make the first part of the course pretty dry, depending on whether it’s stuff you’re already pretty familiar with or not), remained, as expected, as did a lot of the details about L2/3 security on Cisco devices.

The major changes were the complete removal of CCP to manage routers (with Zone Based Firewall config); this gave way to Cisco ASA configuration – certainly much more relevant to my role and reflective of industry too. Configuration for the ASA was only via ASDM too; if I remember rightly, this was via the command line in the last syllabus and very basic in comparison.

In addition, the way the course is delivered, via online labs rather than locally hosted equipment (which I had to use, and share last time) is superb.
