INSIGHTS FROM A CYBERSEC
RESPONDER® (CFR) INSTRUCTOR

  • Using a variety of cybersecurity principles and tools to reveal actionable intelligence.  

  • Deploying proper mitigation practices on any platform, in any location. 

  • Taking a more proactive vs. reactive approach to security.  

  • Understanding how security affects all aspects of an organization. 

  • Employing good evidence collection, preservation, and forensic practices when attacks do happen. 

  • Reinforcing learning with realistic, hands-on practice in a safe, sandbox environment.  

 

CyberSec First Responder (CFR) meets all these needs, and that’s why it’s one of my favorite – and most frequent – classes to teach.  My students tell me that the 5 days they spend away from their operations to attend CFR is more than justified by the positive impacts on their business.

I’ve been delivering security and technology classes to IT professionals for over twenty years.  My instructional career grew from my own experiences working in IT. My classroom and my field experiences allow me to realize what IT leaders and practitioners need to get out of their time spent in security training:

  • Insights into today’s threat landscape; how it now extends further than your data center.  

  • Taking a comprehensive approach to risk management.  It’s more than end-user training, patch management, and online research.
