What is the Security Certified Program (SCP)?
Security Certified Program is both our company name and our program name.
Security Certified Program, LLC a Chicago-based security training organization,
has created the Security Certified Program (SCP) to help develop and validate
your skills as a computer and network security professional. The SCP courses and
certifications are designed not just around knowledge-based theory, like so many
others, rather around the actual technical skills required by practitioners.

well as skills needed for specific security technologies, such as Packet Structure,
Signature Analysis, Operating System Hardening, Router Security, Firewalls, Virtual
Private Networks (VPNs), Intrusion Detection, Risk Analysis, Wireless
Security, Digital Signatures and Certificates, Cryptography, Biometrics and Network
The SCP certifications include three vendor-neutral security certifications. The
first certification is the Security Certified Network Specialist (SCNS), the next
certification is Security Certified Network Professional (SCNP), and the third is
Security Certified Network Architect (SCNA).
