NIL Learning, a leading provider of instructor-led technical training, announces the addition of CyberSec First Responder: Threat Detection and Response to their public training schedule. This cybersecurity training course and corresponding ProCert-accredited certification, Certified CyberSec First Responder, were developed by Logical Operations with the goal of helping organizations combat cybersecurity threats.

UPDATE: As of March 12, 2018, we no longer offer the CFR training. We recommend you to take the Securing Cisco Networks with Threat Detection and Analysis (SCYBER) course.

The number of exceptional IT security breaches continues to grow exponentially, which are 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.

"Cybercriminals are becoming increasingly resourceful and sophisticated, therefore building and maintaining internal expertise is crucial for organizations in preventing cyber-attacks. Our role as a training provider is to help them on that path by providing leading-edge security knowledge and skills. The CyberSec First Responder: Threat and Response training provides security professionals with the expertise for minimizing and mitigating risks before, during, and after a breach. The course is an important expansion of our security training portfolio and we believe our joint efforts with Logical Operations will help organizations to become more resilient to cyber-threats," said Bojan Kotnik, Director - NIL Learning, NIL.

 “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 NIL Learning 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.”
