Why study this course

The Conducting Threat Hunting and Defending using Cisco Technologies for CyberOps (CBRTHD) training is a five-day Cisco threat hunting training that introduces and guides you to a proactive security search through networks, endpoints, and datasets to hunt for malicious, suspicious, and risky activities that may have evaded detection by existing tools. In this training, you will learn the core concepts, methods, and processes used in threat hunting investigations. This training provides an environment for attack simulation and threat hunting skill development using a wide array of security products and platforms from Cisco and third-party vendors.

This training prepares you for the 300-220 CBRTHD v1.0 exam. If passed, you earn the Cisco Certified Specialist - Threat Hunting and Defending certification and satisfy the concentration exam requirement for the Cisco Certified CyberOps Professional certification. This training also earns you 40 credits towards recertification.
