CyberSec First Responder Course Overview

CyberSec First Responder Course Overview

The CyberSec First Responder course is designed to prepare learners with the necessary skills to protect critical information systems before, during, and after an attack. It focuses on understanding, assessing, and responding to security threats and incidents. Through the course, learners will gain expertise in risk management, threat analysis, vulnerability management, penetration testing, and incident response.

Starting with risk management, students will learn to identify and mitigate risks, integrating documentation into the risk management process. The course then progresses to analyzing the threat landscape, including threat research and profiling. Participants will explore various attack scenarios, from reconnaissance threats and social engineering to system hacking and malware. They also learn about managing vulnerabilities within the organization and implementing penetration testing.

The course further delves into collecting cybersecurity intelligence, analyzing log data, and performing active network analysis with various tools. Finally, it covers responding to and investigating cybersecurity incidents, including forensic investigation procedures. Completing the CyberSec First Responder course equips learners with the knowledge to defend and respond to cybersecurity threats effectively, providing a strong foundation for a career in cybersecurity.

Course Prerequisites

To ensure that learners can successfully comprehend and apply the concepts taught in the CyberSec First Responder course, the following minimum prerequisites are recommended:

  • Basic understanding of networking principles, including OSI and TCP/IP models, network topologies, and common networking devices.
  • Familiarity with the Windows and Linux operating systems and their command-line interfaces.
  • Knowledge of common cyber threats, vulnerabilities, and the overall threat landscape.
  • Experience with general security concepts such as authentication, authorization, encryption, and firewalls.
  • Awareness of the principles of risk management and the importance of a risk-based approach to security.
  • Some experience with or exposure to security technologies like antivirus, IDS/IPS, SIEM, and endpoint protection.
  • Critical thinking and problem-solving skills to assess and prioritize security incidents.

While these are the minimum prerequisites, it is also beneficial if learners have:

  • Prior experience in an IT or cybersecurity role, although it's not mandatory.
  • The willingness to engage in continuous learning, as cybersecurity is a rapidly evolving field.

Please note that the course is designed to build on these foundational skills and knowledge, so students with a firm grasp of these concepts will be able to maximize their learning experience. If you're new to cybersecurity, we encourage you to pursue introductory courses or self-study to prepare for the more advanced topics covered in the CyberSec First Responder course.
