Palo Alto Networks Certified Cybersecurity Associate (PCCSA)
The PCCSA certification validates the knowledge required for entry-level network security positions, whose technical requirements change as quickly as the technology upon which it’s based. PCCSA certified individuals have detailed knowledge of the latest trends in networks-based cyberattacks and of cutting-edge technologies available to prevent them.
This certification has no prerequisites. Recommended training includes the Palo Alto Networks Cyber Security Academy Cybersecurity Survival Guide, and the Cyber Security Foundation digital learning course.
Palo Alto Networks is aware that the cybersecurity market faces a significant challenge in finding and hiring trained and talented individuals. There will be more than 3.5 million unfilled jobs in cybersecurity by 2021, according to Forbes Magazine. The PCCSA seeks to identify people who can operate the most cutting-edge technology available today to manage the cyberthreats of tomorrow.
