CyberSec First Responder Courseware & Certification Provides Students with Free Hacker Academy Subscriptions to Practice and Hone New Skills

 April 2, 2015 Logical Operations is excited to announce that we have officially released our new cybersecurity training course, CyberSec First Responder: Threat Detection and Response, and corresponding certification, Certified CyberSec First Responder, to help organizations worldwide combat cybersecurity threats.


We teamed up with Blackfin Security, owners of the Hacker Academy, to launch a first of its kind bundled learning kit that provides students with a hands-on, real-world learning experience that goes well beyond the classroom. With purchase of a courseware kit (which includes a backpack, t-shirt, and option to add a voucher to take the certification exam), all students will receive a free 90-day subscription to the Hacker Academy. This exclusive offer allows students to continue their hands-on learning beyond the classroom to train and practice with hands-on labs and simulated networks, which provide the most engaging real-world experience for their newly learned cybersecurity skills. Read the full press release here >


"The partnership between Logical Operations and Blackfin Security signifies an evolution in the certification industry. It's the first step to providing organizations with certified professionals who not only know terminology, but also know how to use these technical skills on-the-job. A more prepared workforce will lead to more secure networks," says Aaron Cohen, COO of Blackfin Security. "We're very excited to bring the Hacker Academy methodology to these individuals."


When combined, the bundled learning kit will provide students with the knowledge and confidence they need when applying the skills and techniques to on-the-job scenarios.


“We’re extremely proud to officially launch CyberSec First Responder: Threat Detection and Response and extend an exclusive Hacker Academy subscription to help students hone their skills in real-world environments,” said Bill Rosenthal, CEO, Logical Operations. “We recognize that people are the key to protecting an organization’s network; even with the best hardware and software solutions, an organization won’t be fully protected without properly trained professionals. Our expertise in the IT security training field has allowed us to create a training course and certification program that uniquely meets the training needs of today’s security professionals and organizations everywhere.”
