    eLearnSecurity Certified Incident Responder (eCIR)

    The eLearnSecurity Certified Incident Responder (eCIR) exam has been designed to help you understand the mechanics of modern cyber-attacks and how to detect them. This is done by teaching cyber security professionals how to analyze, handle, and respond to security incidents on heterogeneous networks and assets. To prepare you for the exam, we've organized more than 9 hours of training material to include hands-on labs, instructor-led video training, and guided learning.

    eCIR Learning Objectives

    eLearnSecurity by INE certifications allow students to gain real-world, hands-on experience as they complete their studies instead of requiring them to complete hundreds of multiple-choice questions. The eCIR challenges you to solve situation-based labs inside a fully featured and real-world environment while educating you on best practices for maximizing efficiency and performance, as well as reducing important security metrics such as time to detect, time to respond and points of risks. By completing a full Incident Response report, you can prove that you have the capabilities to explain why an intrusion occurred, how to prevent the intrusion again, and any additional mitigation steps necessary. Putting the analysis in your hands allows you to prove to your team and supervisors that you have what it takes to stop attacks in their tracks.
