CyberSec First Responder Training

Duration:

5 Days

Course Description:

CyberSec First Responders are just that: the first line of response against cyber attacks that can cost your organization valuable time and money. The CyberSec First Responder: Threat Detection and Response course, or CFR, will prepare security professionals to become the first line of response against cyber attacks by teaching students to analyze threats, design secure computing and network environments, proactively defend networks, and respond/investigate cybersecurity incidents. CFR is also designed for students who are seeking to fulfill DoD directive 8570.01 for information assurance training.

Who is this class for?

CyberSec First Responder: Threat Detection and Response is designed for information assurance professionals who perform job functions related to the development, operation, management, and enforcement of security capabilities for systems and networks.

Prerequisites:

  • Recommended at least 2 years of experience in computer network security technology or a related eld.
  • Recognize information security vulnerabilities and threats in the context of risk management.
  • Operate at a foundational level some of the common operating systems for computing environments.
  • Foundational knowledge of the concepts and operational framework of common assurance safeguards in computing environments. Safeguards include, but are not limited to, basic authentication and authorization, resource permissions, and anti-malware mechanisms.
  • Operate at a foundational level some of common concepts for network environments, such as routing and switching.
  • Foundational knowledge of the concepts and operational framework of common assurance safeguards in network environments. Safeguards include, but are not limited to, firewalls, intrusion prevention systems, and VPNs
