CyberSec First Responder: Threat Detection and Response
YOU are the first line of defense your organization has against a cyber security attack. Don't leave it to chance.
By taking an approach where an understanding of the anatomy of an attack is developed, the CyberSec First Responder (CFR) cybersecurity certification validates individuals have the high-stakes skills needed to serve their organizations before, during, and after a breach.
A CyberSec First Responder is the first line of defense against cyber attacks that can cost an organization valuable time and money. The CyberSec First Responder cyber security training and certification program will prepare security professionals to become the first responders who defend against cyber attacks by teaching students to analyze threats, design secure computing and network environments, proactively defend networks, and respond/investigate cyber security incidents.
This certification supports a certification that is a DoD Approved 8570 Baseline Certification and meets DoD 8140/8570 training requirements.
- Threats and Attacks
- Data Collection and Analysis
- Incident Response Methods, Tools, and Techniques
- The Incident Response Process
- Vulnerability Assessment
Candidates who successfully pass the CyberSec First Responder exam will have 3 years from the date of certification to recertify. Candidates will have 2 options between which to choose:
- Retake the most recent version of the exam before their certification expires.
- Earn and submit enough continuing education credits (CECs) to recertify without retaking the exam.
