Specialists operate and maintain computer information systems to keep them secure. They determine who requires access to which information, and then plan, coordinate and implement information security programs. Specialists also protect and defend against cyber threats.
The CSX Cybersecurity Specialist training package provides specific training which focuses on developing cybersecurity threat-hunting skills. Throughout the program, you will learn to identify attacks as they occur and hunt potential threats, in order to stop them before they impact organizational systems. Upon completion of each lab, detailed feedback is provided on strengths and weaknesses so you know where to focus your efforts to practice areas of strength and develop areas where you may not have experience.
The final objective in this training is to complete a live challenge in the CSX Cyber Hunt, an advanced, capture-the-flag cybersecurity challenge which takes place in a real environment where you work to put your red and blue team skills to the test.
