CFR Instructor, GOPAS

“In my cybersecurity career, with a variety of certifications under my belt, the CFR certification stands out distinctly. Unlike other certifications, CFR doesn’t just cover topics superficially; it dives deep into the essence of what makes a cybersecurity professional effective. It emphasizes a holistic view, encouraging us to understand and respect the different roles within cybersecurity, from analyzing risks to responding to incidents and investigating them with forensic techniques. This certification goes beyond just enhancing individual skills; it significantly strengthens our team’s ability to protect our organization against complex threats. Therefore, I firmly believe the CFR training and exam should be a mandatory part of every security team certification prerequisites. It sets the benchmark for the level of expertise and collaboration I wish to see in my colleagues.”
