Logical Operations offers a growing portfolio of high-stakes certifications and credentials, such as the CyberSec First Responder: Threat Detection and Response certification (also called CFR) and the Certified CyberSAFE credential. These assessments help organizations validate their employees’ skills, and also help individuals demonstrate their security-related knowledge for employers. Logical Operations’ CEO, Bill Rosenthal, is a board member of the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and works alongside representatives from organizations such as AT&T, Bank of America, Facebook, Google, Intel, Microsoft, Verizon, Visa, and more, to make sure that everyone has the education and resources they need to stay secure in our increasingly interconnected world.

The CyberSec First Responder certification, available through an exam administered at PearsonVUE testing centers worldwide, is maintained continuously by Logical Operations’ cybersecurity subject-matter experts and practitioners and is updated multiple times throughout the year to guarantee applicability to the latest security threats. Questions are presented in multiple formats to ensure a thorough testing of relevant security knowledge. Currently accredited by ProCert, the CyberSec First Responder exam is now moving through the ISO 17024 accreditation process through the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).
