Logical Operations has announced that the CyberSec First Responder (CFR) certification is now approved by the United States Department of Defense (DoD) as DoD Directive 8570 compliant. CFR is now an approved Baseline Certification for the CSSP Analyst and CSSP Incident Responder categories, and verifies the skills necessary to perform these job functions.

The CyberSec First Responder certification exam (CFR-210) tests the cybersecurity practitioner’s ability to prevent, detect, analyze, and respond to security breaches in the organization.  Transcender is the authorized practice test provider for the CFR-210 and provides the CFR-210 practice exam, which includes 260 practice questions and over 300 flash cards covering the exam’s four main objectives:

  • Analyze Threats
  • Design Secure Computing and Network Environments
  • Proactively Defend Networks
  • Respond/Investigate Cybersecurity Incidents

According to Joe Mignano, VP of Channels for Logical Operations, the DoD approval “allows individuals fulfilling crucial information assurance functions for the United States government or their contractors to validate their Analyst and Incident Responder job skills with our certification program.”

The CFR certification already met the ANSI/ISO/IEC 17024 standard and was accredited by ANSI (American National Standards Institute) in 2016.

Logical Operations also provides a CFR training course, developed to prepare IT professionals with 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.

U.S. Department of Defense Directive 8570 provides guidance and procedures for the training, certification, and management of all DoD employees involved with Information Assurance functions in their line of duty.  Other providers of certifications that meet DoD Directive 8570 are Cisco, Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA), EC-Council, International Information Systems Security Certifications Consortium (ISC)2, Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA), and Global Information Assurance Certification (GIAC).

Who says there’s no news in December? In cybersecurity, it’s never a question of if, but a question of when a breach will occur. So rather than wait for the new year, we thought we’d get the jump on 2017 and together with Logical Operations, release the Cybersec First Responder (CFR-210) practice test today.

What exactly is the CFR certification all about? Well, CFR-210 showcases your ability to to quickly detect and respond to active cyber threats. It’s not just about detailed knowledge of the analysis techniques and tools, but how to identify and respond, in real time, to the broad array of security threats affecting organizations worldwide.

So, white hats, rejoice and black hats, you’re on notice. They’re some new sheriffs rolling into town with some serious skills — and they’re not afraid to use them!

Here’s the press release for your reading pleasure.
