CyberSec First Responder (CFR) - Now a Required Certification

The concept of a Cyber EMT is powerful. Anyone can be first to respond, but not everyone can respond effectively. CyberSec First Responders (CFR) are trained to keep the patient alive and minimize the damage.

As of July 6, 2017, the recently established CyberSec First Responder Certification was approved as a DOD 8570 IA baseline certification. Among the current family of required cyber training, CFR takes a giant leap forward in empowering IT professionals to play a critical role in protecting the organization.    

CyberSec First Responder course serves both role-based and cross functional training objectives; the training provides IT professionals with needed skills before, during, and after a security breach. CFR training is well suited to help individuals serve in key roles dealing with Cybercrimes, forensics, defense analysis, and incident response as well as threat communications. 

CFR National Initiative. National Resilience Depends on Bold Cybersecurity Leaders.

Here is what we are doing.  Tyche Consulting, LLC is involved in a national effort to build resilient cybersecurity workforce. Specifically, our goal is to attract new talent, train, and certify a national workforce of Cyber Security First Responders. We are working with businesses of all sizes, industry leaders, government mission owners, law enforcement, academic institutions, and interested cyber professionals to prepare for the next generation of cyber threats.

Public Officials Get CyberSAFE Certified – Cybersecurity is Team Support

PRESS RELEASE

N.C. Public Officials Get CyberSAFE Certified – Cybersecurity is a Team Support

On Friday August 18, 2017 up to 40 Durham, North Carolina City Officials including first responders will attend a CyberSAFE Readiness training to become CyberSAFE certified. Six months ago, Mike Echols, CEO of Tyche Consulting  and Max CyberSec launch an initiative to increase cyber awareness among public officials and first responders across the country. “CyberSAFE is about moving beyond compliance and establishing a personal commitment to make cybersecurity a core value among end-users and creating a culture of cybersecurity” said Mr. Echols.

CyberSAFE Readiness training will help equip public officials with an heighted-level of understanding to identify many of the common risks associated with using conventional end-user technology.  The course promotes and validates end-user responsibility and effective risk management and fosters role-based security awareness.

National CyberSAFE partners include organizations dedicated to increasing the nation’s cyber resilience.  Logical Operations is the course content developer and global training provider (i.e. CompTIA Security+, CyberSec First Responder, Certified Information Systems Security Professional, etc.); Max CyberSecurity / Tyche Consulting cybersecurity risk management and human capital services firms.
