Overview

On this accelerated 3-day CyberSec First Responder (CFR) course, you'll learn the skills to monitor, detect and execute appropriate responses for IT security incidents - 40% faster than traditional training. With these skills, you'll become the first line of defense against cyber-attacks, boosting your business' existing IT security measures.

You'll be immersed in the curriculum through our unique Lecture | Lab | Review technique, which allows you learn and retain information faster.

Your expert instructor will introduce tools and tactics used to manage cyber security risks, teaching you to identify a range of common threats and how to collect and analyse cyber security intelligence. You'll learn how to:

  • Assess information security risk, attacks and post-attacks in computing and network environments.
  • Analyse the cyber security threat landscape and evaluate the organisation's security posture within a risk management framework
  • Analyse reconnaissance threats to computing and network environments.
  • Collect cybersecurity intelligence.
  • Analyse data collected from security and event logs.
  • Perform active analysis on assets and networks.
  • Investigate and respond to cyber security incidents.

During the course, you'll prepare for and sit the CyberSec First Responder CFR-210 exam, covered by your Certification Guarantee.

If you're a cyber security practitioner responsible for protecting information systems by ensuring their availability, integrity, authentication, confidentiality, and non-repudiation, this course is ideal for you. This course is also suitable for those looking to fulfill DoD directive 8570.01 for information assurance (IA) training.

Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. Two options of training. Choose between residential classroom-based, or online CFR courses
  2. You'll be CFR certified in just 3 days. With us, you’ll be CFR trained in record time
  3. Our CFR course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  4. Pass CFR first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs
  5. You’ll learn more. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor
  6. You’ll learn CFR faster. Chances are, you’ll have a different learning style to those around you. We combine visual, auditory and tactile styles to deliver the material in a way that ensures you will learn faster and more easily
  7. You’ll be studying CFR with the best. We’ve been named in Training Industry’s “Top 20 IT Training Companies of the Year” every year since 2010. As well as winning many more awards, we’ve trained and certified 76,205 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business

"The course was delivered well, and the content was made interesting, with the diversity of smaller group sessions and whole group sessions. Due to current situations, it was delivered virtually, however it was adapted well to an online environment "
J.S., BT. (20/7/2020 (Monday) to 21/7/2020 (Tuesday))

"The instructor was amazing and kept me interested for those 3 days in what could be a not so interesting subject"
Jenni Bland, NA. (16/7/2020 (Thursday) to 18/7/2020 (Saturday))

"I would like to thank the instructors and Firebrand staff who have made my experience here great despite current Covid climates. This has been one of the best courses I have been on and I am grateful for the instructor to be teaching it. The course was very intense - make no mistake, it is not a course that you should just turn up to and assume you will pass - it requires effort, but the instructor helped and explained everything I was struggling with. I have no doubt I wouldnt have the passed the exam without the instructor's assistance and guidance. Another point here I would like to add, I know remote working is probably the future, but on-site learning cannot be beaten, it lets you stay focused and concentrate - key requirements for this course."
Martin Barrow. (11/5/2020 (Monday) to 17/5/2020 (Sunday))

"Intensive deep knowledge training by a very positive and motivated trainer. The instructor really helped me get my head around AWS, and define solid basements for the certification. Outstanding flexibility & creativity facing the audiance as he needed to face strong network/security guys of the same company, with weak system/db background."
B.B., Orange Cyber Defense. (13/7/2020 (Monday) to 16/7/2020 (Thursday))

"2nd experience with Firebrand, and with no doubts these are one of the highest quality trainings I ever attended. "
V.P., Orange Cyberdefense Belgium. (13/7/2020 (Monday) to 16/7/2020 (Thursday))
