The partnership benefits industry beginners, pros by bringing together seasoned cybersecurity experts
AUSTIN, TX October 25, 2018 – CyberDefenses, a premier Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP) since 2001, has paired up with the National Cyber-Forensics and Training Alliance (NCFTA) to expand NCFTA’s training program into the southwestern United States. Through the partnership, the two organizations are combining their in-depth expertise and proven curricula to create the top cyber-forensics training program in the country for law enforcement and business.

They have a strong track record of creating and delivering training that helps us arm cybersecurity pros and law enforcement with the information and skills they need to do their jobs well.”
