Rochester, N.Y. (PRWEB) January 13, 2015
Logical Operations, the world’s leading provider of information technology instructor-led courseware, today announces the development of a new cybersecurity training course, CyberSec First Responder: Threat Detection and Response, and corresponding certification, Certified CyberSec First Responder, to help organizations combat cybersecurity threats.
2014 saw an exceptional number of IT security breaches, which are part of an overall trend in 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. Logical Operations has leveraged its knowledge and years of experience in the security training industry to develop the new CyberSec First Responder: Threat Detection and Response training curriculum and certification program. This five-day instructor-led training curriculum, available in March 2015, 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/investigate cybersecurity incidents. Following the release of the curriculum in March 2015, the course will be available on Logical Operations’ virtual training schedule, Instructor Assist.
“We’re extremely proud to announce the addition of CyberSec First Responder: Threat and Response to our IT Security training portfolio,” 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.”
"These are challenging times for organizations of all kinds. Being part of the global business ecosystem represents inherent risks that become unacceptable at times. The stakes are higher: threats are more pervasive and stealth, as demonstrated by the latest Advanced Persistent Threats in the wild,” said Carlos Moros, Senior Security Consultant and industry expert. “The assets we are trying to protect are more relevant than ever, from personal data to infrastructure and national security targets. The attack surface is now expanded exponentially, with mobility, device agnosticism, and cloud services leading the way. Hiring qualified professionals sometimes feels like an adventure, as the required technical, functional, and organizational skills pile up. I am convinced that organizations will find the CyberSec First Responder certification invaluable in baselining their requirements and finding those unique individuals who can do the job effectively."
