CCSP Exam

Unanswered Question
Jan 2nd, 2009

Hi Friends,

I have finished my four exams of CCSP, one is pending and I am confused about that. Here are the details.

642-552 SND Finished

642-503 SNRS Finished

642-523 SNPA Finished

642-533 IPS Finished

Now I want to finish my last paper, and I am interested in 642-515 SNAA. Will I get my CCSp certificate if I complete this paper, If not then what are the options for me.

I have this problem too.

Hi Rameshwar,

You are right on track my friend :) If you also have a valid CCNA then (which I'm sure you do), then yes, the SNAA will complete your CCSP Cert.

Candidates for CCSP will now need only four exams (three required, one elective) with the introduction of the new CCNA Security as a prerequisite, instead of the five exams required today (four required, one elective). ** Retired exams that have been passed may be used towards exam requirements for three years.

Hi Mohamed,

Here you go :)

Cisco Certified Security Professional Prerequisite

CCNA Security

OR

CCNA + SND*

*Last day for using this pre-requisite is November 17, 2011.

The Cisco exam Securing Network Devices (SND), and the elective exam Securing Hosts Using Cisco Security Agent (HIPS) are now retired effective November 17, 2008. Candidates testing for their CCSP certification, who have passed the SND or HIPS exams may use them towards their certification for three years from the day on which they passed the test.

If you did not pass the SND exam before it expired then the CCNA Security will be required along with a 3 (required) + 1 (elective) combination of the exams below;

642-504 SNRS Securing Networks with Cisco Routers and Switches (SNRS)

642-524 SNAF Securing Networks with ASA Foundation (SNAF)

642-533 IPS Implementing Cisco Intrusion Prevention System (IPS)

Elective Exam(s) Elective Training

642-591 CANAC

OR

642-545 MARS

OR

642-515 SNAA

Hope this helps!
