CertNexus’ CyberSec First Responder Certifications Have Been Approved For Singapore CITREP+ Funding
CITREP supports the ICT workforce in keeping pace with technology shifts, through the continuous and proactive training of technical skills sets, in order to remain relevant and productive. To build a strong core of local ICT professionals with Smart Nation capabilities, CITREP+ has been expanded to support entry-level professionals since April 2016 to build specialized ICT skills through broad-based training courses and certifications.
The CyberSec First Responder (CFR) certification validates that a candidate understands and can execute tactics, tools, and procedures to manage cybersecurity risks, identify various types of common threats, evaluate the organization’s security, collect and analyze cybersecurity intelligence and remediate and report incidents as they occur. The CFR exam is accredited under the ANSI/ISO/IEC 17024 standard and is also approved by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to fulfill Directive 8570/8140 requirements amongst other accreditations.
