I started this certificate on Friday and want to speak about it.
It is from ‘Mosse Cyber Security Institute’ who are Australia’s leading education centre for cyber security.
Since they became an established MCSI in 2015, they have trained over 1000 cyber security professionals worldwide, delivered 100’s of workshops, and have given presentations to over 500 business executives and board members Australia-wide, as well as internationally but I personally hadn’t heard of them or seen anyone chatting about them so wanted to dive deeper.
Since starting my role at Sophos I have been on the lookout more for DFIR books and courses as I really have fallen in live with digital forensics and incident response so want to up my game in them and focus more in this area.
So MDFIR – Certified DFIR Specialist:-
“An MCSI qualified professional Digital Forensics and Incident Response (DFIR) Specialist is capable of delivering enterprise-level incident response engagements.

The course is ridiculously in depth and covers everything from ‘Lab Set-up’ for both DFIR and Reverse Engineering to ‘Windows Forensics’ and ‘Threat Intelligence’.
Here is a video telling you more, its an older video as the course had updated a lot but it gives you the idea.
So far, I am only after the first couple but have been very impressed as its 100% practical, there is no walkthroughs or slide shows etc its just here is a question now go and get it done so for instance look at these.
Really enjoying digging deeper into the subject and looking forward to having a certificate at the end of it.
It will take many months to complete so will post more as I go along with it but listen, it ONLY costs $450 which is about £335.
Here is some links for you to have a nosey around on and ill post more on it in a couple weeks.
