A Holistic Approach to Security Training

To defend against constant threats, cybersecurity professionals require a well-rounded understanding of the tools, processes, and strategies employed when protecting an information system. CFR moves beyond topic-specific training, developing the skills needed to protect information systems before, during, and after an attack.

Shut the Door On Hackers

What better way to stop a hacker than by preventing them from getting in to begin with? Through the development of penetration testing skills, CFR enables cybersecurity professionals to identify vulnerabilities before they can be leveraged by attackers. Allowing you to take a proactive approach to network security prevents attacks before they happen.

Minimize Damage - Identify Attacks Quickly

Our enemy is unknown, dangerous, and adaptive, the ability to detect and mitigate threats quickly is critical to minimizing the high-risk cost of a cyber-attack. CFR utilizes an immersive, hands-on environment to develop the skills and knowledge needed to cut the lag time between when a breach occurs and when it is detected.

Who Should Attend?

Ideal for those with 2+ years of experience in IT or information security, CFR prepares cybersecurity professionals for performing numerous tasks within an organization. From developing secure networks to identifying breaches in real time, CFR equips professionals with the skills they need to keep the hackers out.

The CFR Master Class

The CFR master class will develop the skills professionals need in the real world. Delivered over five days, CFR utilizes an immersive lab environment, hands-on activities and a digital learning platform with curriculum-rich content to ensure every student is equipped with the skills necessary to immediately strengthen their organizations' cybersecurity defenses.
