New Horizons Computer Learning Centers is first to market with a NEW system agnostic course, where students are exposed to a variety of threats across multiple platforms and learn how to monitor, analyze, and respond to security threats within the network. 
The new Securing Cisco Networks with Threat Detection Analysis (SCYBER) course teaches IT employees how to guard your infrastructure to ensure that when a system is breached, the damage, both to you and your customers, is minimized.
“What differentiates SCYBER from other cyber security courses is that it moves concepts out of theory and focuses on real-time network defense during a cyber-attack,” shares Mark Kassing, Cisco Product Specialist for New Horizons.
Demand for cybersecurity professionals has been on the rise for years, with recent high-profile computer hacking events even further escalating the need for qualified professionals who can protect organizations’ computer networks. Cisco’s Cybersecurity Specialist Certification is a job-role focused certification designed for professionals working in Network Security Analysis. Leveraging features that exist in Cisco and other industry network security products, the certification ensures holders are proficient in proactive network security threat detection and mitigation.
The Securing Cisco Networks with Threat Detection Analysis (SCYBER) is a 5-day instructor-led course that prepares students to take Cisco’s new Cybersecurity Specialist Certification exam and hit the ground running as security analysts. Combining a mix of expert-facilitated instruction time and hands-on labs, this course ensures that students are able to successfully understand cyber security concepts and to recognize specific threats and attacks on their organization’s network.
