Cyber Sheild 2021

The CYBER SHIELD 2021 course is a proprietary course developed by Mile2 to provide military and government personnel the forensic skills needed to engage in detection, prevention and recovery tactics within cyber space.

The Cyber Shield 2021 Course was originally designed for the Ohio National Guard. It is a vendor neutral cyber security course focusing on the acquisition and collection of evidence, forensic analysis, malware analysis and report writing.

The Cyber Shield 2021 course training entails hands on labs in mile2’s proprietary cyber range. Each lab designated teaches the methodology for conducting a computer forensic examination, an incident/event and general network forensic scenarios. Students will learn to use industry acceptable and forensically sound investigative techniques in order to, evaluate the scene, collect and document all relevant information, interview appropriate personnel, maintain chain-of-custody, and write a findings/executive report.

This specialized course covers topics from Mile2’s C)DFE, C)NFE, and C)CSA courses which are all a part of our Master Forensic Investigator line of study.
