What you will learn

What you will Learn

The Performing CyberOps Using Cisco Security Technologies (CBRCOR) v1.0 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, analyzing threats, and making appropriate recommendations to improve cybersecurity.
This course also earns you 40 Continuing Education (CE) credits toward recertification and prepares you for the 350-201 CBRCOR core exam.
