Achieving CCNP Security certification proves your skills with security solutions. To earn CCNP Security certification, you pass two exams: one that covers core security technologies and one security concentration exam of your choice, so you can customize your certification to your technical area of focus.
There are no formal prerequisites for CCNP Security, but you should have a good understanding of the exam topics before taking the exam. CCNP candidates often also have three to five years of experience implementing security solutions.
