Why study this course

The Performing CyberOps Using Cisco Security Technologies (CBRCOR) course guides you through cybersecurity operations fundamentals, methods, and automation.

The knowledge you gain in this course will prepare you for the role of Information Security Analyst on a Security Operations Center (SOC) team. You will learn foundational concepts and their application in real-world scenarios, and how to leverage playbooks in formulating an Incident Response (IR). The course teaches you how to use automation for security using cloud platforms and a SecDevOps methodology. You will learn the techniques for detecting cyberattacks, analysing threats, and making appropriate recommendations to improve cybersecurity.

This course will help you:

  • Gain an advanced understanding of the tasks involved for senior-level roles in a security operations center

  • Configure common tools and platforms used by security operation teams via practical application

  • Prepare you to respond like a hacker in real-life attack scenarios and submit recommendations to senior management

  • Prepare for the 350-201 CBRCOR core exam

  • Earn 30 CE credits toward recertification
