Welcome to CCNA Security


Hello, my name is Keith Barker and on behalf of the entire CBT Nuggets family, I'd like to welcome you to CCNA Security. Let's begin. As you and I embark together on this journey through the world of CCNA Security, which is for exam 210-260, I have a couple of tips I'd like to share with you.


Number one, I would invite you to enjoy our time together. Every single Nugget is going to have a lot of fun and new, exciting things in it. And we're going to be learning as we go through it together, so please enjoy the process. Another key factor-- for you and I really internalizing and mastering this content-- is to get some hands on practice.


And I'll give you the tools and techniques that we can use to build home labs to get the practice. But you know what, it's up to you, my friend, to actually do the practice that I assign. So any time there's homework that I assign, I'd love it if you'd make sure that you do that as part of your studies to become CCNA certified and to really master this content.


And the third thing I'd like to encourage you to do-- and its helped me in the past, so I want to pass it along to you as well-- is I would invite you to commit. And you might ask, well, Keith, what should we commit to. And I would say, we should start by committing our time.


For example, maybe committing so many days a week and so many minutes a day, maybe 15 minutes a day, three or four days a week. And then commit that publicly. Go ahead and commit it to your family, your friends. Let people know that you are serious. Because that will help you with a little, teeny added advantage, a little bit of pressure to make sure that you actually follow through on it.


Because you made the commitment, now you're going to follow through on it. And if you want to commit to me, I would love that as well. In fact, you go ahead and make a commitment up on my Keith Barker networking page on Facebook or on Twitter. And just say something like, I commit to, you know, 15 minutes a day, four days a week, or whatever you're ready to commit to.


And then after you've made that commitment, let's get into these Nuggets. Let's get into this hands-on practice, and let's really nail it. So I kept this video, my friend, very, very short because I wanted you and I to get right into our next video, which is on the concepts of confidentiality, data integrity, and availability.


I'll see you in that next Nugget. Until then, I hope this has been informative for you. And I'd like to thank you for viewing.
