The Conducting Forensic Analysis and Incident Response Using Cisco Technologies for CyberOps (CBRFIR) v1.0 course consists of a series of self-paced lectures and videos that build your Digital Forensics and Incident Response (DFIR) and cybersecurity knowledge and skills. The course prepares you to identify and respond to cybersecurity threats, vulnerabilities, and incidents. Additionally, you will be introduced to digital forensics, including the collection and examination of digital evidence on electronic devices and learn to build the subsequent response threats and attacks. Students will also learn to proactively conduct audits to prevent future attacks. The Conducting Forensic Analysis and Incident Response Using Cisco Technologies for CyberOps (CBRFIR) v1.0 course also prepares you to take the 300-215 CBRFIR exam.
