CyberSec First Responder Training Course

The Professional Education Program at the iSchool is pleased announce that we’ll begin our first CyberSec First Responder training course October 17! Please share widely with anyone you think might benefit from this unique training program for information and security professionals!

The CyberSec First Responder: Threat Detection and Response (CFR) training course provides information professionals with the skills necessary to analyze threats, design secure computing and network environments, proactively defend networks, and respond to/investigate cybersecurity incidents. Individuals who complete the CFR training course will have the opportunity to take an exam and become a certified CyberSec First Responder, validating that they possess the critical skills necessary for anyone performing incident response job tasks.

The University of Maryland, and the iSchool, is one of a small number of academic institutions in the country providing this training to professionals who play a critical role in protecting federal agencies, corporations, and other organizations from cyber attack. CFR training courses will be taught by instructors vetted by the iSchool and trained by Logical Operations.
