Regional and National CERTs

Introduction

Mossé Cyber Security Institute (MCSI) has created a unique opportunity to provide two comprehensively designed Certification training programmes, free of charge, to regional and national Computer Emergency and Response Teams (CERTs).

The reason is simple: Members of regional and national CERTs dedicate their careers to protecting nations by offering incident response and management services, as well as sending out security advisories and bulletins. Moreover, they coordinate takedowns of adversary infrastructure. In essence, MCSI shares the same mission objectives and values with CERTs. Therefore, it is only natural for us to reach out, acknowledge their value through giving something back to them for these very important services they provide in keeping our country safe.

The Certification trainings are delivered via our Online Learning Platform (OLP) which offers uniquely designed exercises that are practical and challenging. They can do these at their own pace. Students who successfully complete our strongly challenging exercises will acquire skills that will be immediately applicable in the field. Our instructors answer questions quickly, in most cases within a few hours, in order to support the student’s skills advancement.

MCSI offers its support for their capabilities by offering CERTs top-notch training and Certifications free-of-charge, with absolutely no strings attached.
