The number of data breaches at businesses continues to grow steadily, and research shows the costs of such security failures can haunt an organization for years afterward. Enterprises facing these threats desperately need skilled professionals who know how to respond quickly and effectively when a breach is discovered—which is why OpenText™ Certified Forensic Security Responder (CFSR) certification is so valuable.

CFSR certification demonstrates that you have proven and up-to-date capabilities as a cybersecurity forensics investigator and know how to help an organization navigate the challenges of responding to suspicious cyber activities and breaches. And the best way to take a step toward earning that certification is to join us at Enfuse 2019 from November 11-14 at The Venetian Resort Las Vegas.

At Enfuse, you’ll be able to attend a variety of labs and lectures to earn credits toward CFSR certification or renewal. The conference offers more than 100 expert-led sessions related to forensic investigation, information security and electronic discovery. You’ll learn about the latest best practices, network with other professionals and hear about cutting-edge developments and other announcements from OpenText.

CFSR certification

CFSR certification is prestigious because it’s built on the real-world and fast-evolving requirements of digital business today. It’s a stringent process that demonstrates you have the skills a modern organization needs to prepare for cyberattacks, detect and contain incidents, analyze root causes, manage remediation after a breach and gain new insights to better defend against future attacks.

In the current business environment, these are highly important and much-needed skills. The nature of cyber threats to business is continually changing, and recent reports show organizations are increasingly at risk of attacks launched through trusted third parties. And yet, other research has found that most organizations don’t have proper plans in place to respond to a cyberattack or, if they do, don’t test those plans often enough to be ready when an incident occurs.

Even as the nature of threats keeps growing, organizations are also facing a serious shortage of people with the investigation and response skills needed. Any business that worries about becoming the target of an attack will find reassurance in having CFSR-certified professionals ready to respond to such incidents.

If you’re interested in CFSR certification, at Enfuse you’ll learn from industry leaders how best to investigate cybersecurity incidents throughout the entire response lifecycle. These are skills that are especially valuable to IT professionals seeking to develop a specialty in forensic security, as well as to digital forensics experts who want to further expand their security knowledge and capabilities.

Join us at Enfuse 2019

In addition to CFSR certification, Enfuse also offers attendees a chance to earn or renew certification as an EnCase Certified eDiscovery Practitioner (EnCEP) and EnCase Certified Examiner (EnCE), both of which demonstrate advanced knowledge and skills in electronic discovery and digital forensics. During the conference, you’ll also learn about OpenText’s latest software capabilities, whether for OpenText™ EnCase™ programs, OpenText™ Axcelerate™, OpenText™ Magellan™, OpenText™ Insight, OpenText™ Covisint and more.

Are you interested in other certification opportunities? Read our blogs on EnCase Certified Examiner (EnCE) certification and EnCase Certified eDiscovery Practitioner (EnCEP) certification for more information.

Be sure to apply for your CFSR and register for Enfuse early so you can be pre-enrolled for the labs and lectures you want to attend. And stay tuned for more details about conference events and activities in the weeks ahead.

We look forward to seeing you in Las Vegas!
