Overview of the Cisco Certification Process

The network security market is currently in a position where the demand for qualified engineers vastly surpasses the supply. For this reason, many engineers consider migrating from routing/networking over to network security. Remember that "network security" is just "security" applied to "networks." This sounds like an obvious concept, but it is actually an important one if you are pursuing your security certification. You must be familiar with networking before you can begin to apply the security concepts. For example, the skills required to complete the CCNA will give you a solid foundation that you can expand into the network security field.

The requirements for and explanation of the CCSP certification are outlined at the Cisco Systems website. Go to Cisco.com and click Learning & Events > Career Certifications & Paths.
