Course Overview:

CyberSec First Responder: Threat Detection and Response Training Course with Lab Exercises

Gain a broad view of how to respond to a cybersecurity incident while preparing for the CyberSec First Responder certification with this CyberSec First Responder: Threat Detection and Response Training.

This CyberSec First Responder: Threat Detection and Response Training 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 computer security incident response team (CSIRT). The CyberSec First Responder: Threat Detection and Response Training course introduces strategies, frameworks, methodologies, and tools to manage cybersecurity risks, identify various types of common threats, design and operate secure computing and networking environments, assess and audit the organization’s security, collect, and analyze cybersecurity intelligence, and handle incidents as they occur. The CyberSec First Responder: Threat Detection and Response Training course also covers closely related information assurance topics such as auditing and forensics to provide a sound basis for a comprehensive approach to security aimed toward those on the front lines of defense.

In addition, this CyberSec First Responder: Threat Detection and Response Training 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.
