This course covers the duties of those who are responsible for monitoring and detecting security incidents in information systems and networks, and for executing a proper response to such incidents. Depending on the size of the organization, this individual may act alone or may be a member of a cybersecurity incident response team (CSIRT). The course introduces tools and tactics to manage cybersecurity risks, identify various types of common threats, evaluate the organization's security, collect and analyze cybersecurity intelligence, and handle incidents as they occur. Ultimately, the course promotes a comprehensive approach to security aimed toward those on the front lines of defense.

This course is designed to assist students in preparing for the CyberSec First Responder (Exam CFR-210) certification examination. Students can also use this course to prepare for the CompTIA® Cybersecurity Analyst+ (Exam CS0-001) certification examination.


This course is designed primarily for cybersecurity practitioners who perform job functions related to protecting information systems by ensuring their availability, integrity, authentication, confidentiality, and non-repudiation. This course focuses on the knowledge, ability, and skills necessary to provide for the defense of those information systems in a cybersecurity context, including protection, detection, analysis, investigation, and response processes. In addition, the course ensures that all members of an IT team—everyone from help desk staff to the Chief Information Officer—understand their role in these security processes.

  • At least 2 years (recommended) of experience in computer network security technology or a related field.
  • The ability to recognize information security vulnerabilities & threats in the context of risk management.
  • Foundation-level operational skills with some of the common operating systems for computing environments.
  • Basic concepts & operational framework of common assurance safeguards in computing environments. Safeguards include basic authentication & authorization, resource permissions & anti-malware mechanisms.
  • Foundation-level understanding of concepts for network environments, such as routing & switching.
  • Basic knowledge of TCP/IP networking protocols, including, but not limited to, TCP, IP, UDP, DNS, HTTP, ARP, ICMP, and DHCP as well as concepts and operational framework of common assurance safeguards in network environments. Safeguards include, but are not limited to, firewalls, intrusion prevention systems, & VPNs.
