Logical Operations' CyberSec First Responder Certification Approved U.S. DoD-8570 Compliant


July 6, 2017 Rochester, N.Y. - Logical Operations is pleased to announce the United States Department of Defense (DoD) has approved the CyberSec First Responder (CFR-210) certification program as DoD Directive 8570 compliant. DoD-8570 provides guidance and procedures for the training, certification, and management of all DoD employees involved with Information Assurance functions in their line of duty. CFR is now an approved Baseline Certification for the CSSP Analyst and CSSP Incident Responder categories, and verifies the skills necessary to perform these job functions.


The CyberSec First Responder (CFR) certification from Logical Operations is designed primarily for cybersecurity practitioners, and it validates that individuals have the high-stakes skills needed to serve their organizations before, during, and after a security breach. The training course developed to help prepare IT professionals for their CFR-210 certification focuses on the knowledge, ability, and skills necessary to provide for the defense of those information systems in a cybersecurity context - including protection, detection, analysis, investigation, and response processes.


“Logical Operations is thrilled for CyberSec First Responder (CFR) to be an approved certification on Department of Defense Directive 8570,” said Joe Mignano, VP of Channels, Logical Operations. “This approval allows individuals fulfilling crucial information assurance functions for the United States government or their contractors to validate their Analyst and Incident Responder job skills with our certification program.”


The CyberSec First Responder exam also meets the ANSI/ISO/IEC 17024 standard and is accredited by ANSI (American National Standards Institute) as of December 2016. ANSI is recognized both nationally and internationally, and has become the hallmark of a quality certification program. Both the ANSI approval and addition of CFR to the DoD Directive 8570 highlight Logical Operations commitment to cybersecurity education and its ability to meet the most rigorous cybersecurity certification standards in the industry today.
