CertNexus, one of the leading IoT and cybersecurity certification developers, has now launched a new set of dates for its CyberSec First Responder CFR certification.

CFR, considered the “Blue Team” certification for cybersecurity, is a comprehensive certification that validates the skill sets of cybersecurity professionals and ensures their competency to handle cyber threats before, during, and after an attack.

Developed with ANSI and DoD 8570 standards, this course and certification are now being offered as virtual courses or in person at CertNexus’ 20+ Authorized Training Partners around the world. CFR is designed for individuals who are interested in developing their cybersecurity experience, and who have experience working with critical information systems as part of a CERT/SCIRT/SOC. The certification can be taken online via the FastTest delivery system or in person at certified test centers with a Proctor.
