Cisco Press CCSP Security Self-Study Products First Authorized Resources to Market

Only Self-Study Books Approved and Recommended by Cisco Systems

Indianapolis, IN-April 8th, 2003 Cisco Press announced today the release of a suite of CCSPâ„? self-study books for the new professional-level security certification offered by Cisco Systems®. The only Cisco® authorized publisher of Cisco networking technology and certification self-study books, Cisco Press is the first publisher to provide Cisco authorized CCSP self-study resources since the certification’s November 2002 introduction. CCSP provides professional-level recognition in designing and implementing secure Cisco networks and requires successful completion of five exams.

Cisco Press will publish in April two CCSP self-study exam guides: CCSP Cisco Secure PIX® Firewall Advanced Exam Certification Guide and CCSP Cisco Secure VPN Exam Certification Guide. Additional titles are underway for all five CCSP components, including the Cisco Secure Intrusion Detection System (CSIDS), Cisco SAFE Implementation (CSI), and Securing Cisco IOS Networks (formerly MCNS) courses and exams. The best-selling Exam Certification Guide line by Cisco Press provides learning assessment and CD-ROM testing engines that allow candidates to put theoretical concepts into real-world practice.

Cisco Press is historically first to market with new Cisco certification self-study products and did so with its rollout of titles for the CSS-1 Security Specialization, the precursor to CCSP. The Cisco Press certification self-study products are a part of a recommended learning path from Cisco Systems that can include instructor-led training with hands-on experience, e-learning, and self-study training.
