Instructor Statement:

“As someone who has worked and taught SOC Analyst courses to hundreds of students, I thoroughly understand the struggle of starting your first position in Cyberdefense. While there is a seemingly infinite amount of information to learn, there are certain central concepts that, when explained systematically, can greatly shorten the time required to become a productive member of the SOC team. This course is designed to pass this knowledge on to you. While some believe SOC positions can feel like a grind, they do not need to be that way. This course goes beyond technical knowledge to also teach the concepts that, if implemented in your SOC, will keep you and your colleagues challenged, happy, and constantly growing in your day-to-day work!”  ~ Francois B. Arthanas


This training is presented as a joint venture between Cyberkraft Training and Direct Line to Compliance in cooperation with CIEDAR and Texas State University.
