CyberSec First Responder (CFR): Threat Detection & Response (CFR)

 

Course Content

This course covers the duties of those who are responsible for monitoring and detecting security incidents in information systems and networks, and for executing a proper response to such incidents. Depending on the size of the organization, this individual may act alone or may be a member of a cybersecurity incident response team (CSIRT). The course introduces tools and tactics to manage cybersecurity risks, identify various types of common threats, evaluate the organization's security, collect and analyze cybersecurity intelligence, and handle incidents as they occur. Ultimately, the course promotes a comprehensive approach to security aimed toward those on the front lines of defense.

Hands-on labs are available for 6 months.

This course is will prepare you for the CyberSec First Responder exam - CFR-210. You can also use this course to prepare for the CompTIA® Cybersecurity Analyst+ (Exam CS0-001) certification examination. What you learn and practice in this course can be a significant part of your preparation.

In addition, this course can help students who are looking to fulfill DoD directive 8570.01 for information assurance (IA) training. This program is designed for personnel performing IA functions, establishing IA policies, and implementing security measures and procedures for the Department of Defense and affiliated information systems and networks.

Who should attend

  • Cybersecurity Practitioners
  • System Engineers
  • System Administrators
  • Network Engineers

Security professionals planning to fulfill DoD directive 8570.01 for information assurance (IA) training.
