The number of exceptional IT security breaches continues to grow exponentially, which is part of an overall trend toward increasingly destructive hacking incidents. These hacking incidents further highlight the enormous demand for qualified security professionals who can protect their organizations’ networks and prevent significant losses. Delivered in an instructor-led setting over a five-day period, 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. The CyberSec First Responder: Threat Detection and Response course 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 to and investigate cybersecurity incidents.

“We’re excited to add the CyberSec First Responder (CFR) course to our curriculum.  It is our mission to help organizations protect their data. Many organizations are infected for six or more months before noticing intruders,” said Christian Espinosa, Principal/White Hat Hacker, Alpine Security.  “The CFR curriculum and certification are a great step towards improving critical detection and incident response capabilities.”

 “We’re extremely proud to announce the addition of CyberSec First Responder: Threat and Response to our IT Security training portfolio, and welcome a partnership with Alpine Security to bring this to the market,” said Bill Rosenthal, CEO, Logical Operations. “Here at Logical Operations, we know that people are the key to protecting an organization’s network; even with the best hardware and software solutions, an organization won’t be fully protected without properly trained professionals. Our expertise in the IT security training field has allowed us to create a training course and certification program that uniquely meets the training needs of today’s security professionals and organizations everywhere.”
