Know that your security team can handle whatever comes their way – keeping your business safe and secure in today’s evolving threat landscape.
Mandiant Academy provides incident response and cyber threat intelligence analysis certifications to test your security team’s existing knowledge in these critical security domains.
Each certification exam—sold separately—is the duration of one hour in length, consists of 50 questions (multiple choice and performance-based), and is administered by a live proctor to protect academic integrity.
Participants will receive a pass/fail score after completing the exam.
Certification Benefits and Structure
Participants who receive a passing score (70% and above) are awarded a certification document and electronic badge, valid for three years and backed by Mandiant, to confirm the participant’s cyber security knowledge and expertise.
Certifications attest to a superior level and depth of knowledge in each area of emphasis.
Students must continually train/study to maintain their certification title.
Efforts account for CPE credits to help participants achieve continuing education requirements.
Cyber security expertise is a journey, not a destination. Attacker tactics and techniques are constantly shifting and morphing.
To ensure our certificate holders stay abreast of current cyber trends, Mandiant Academy requires 90 CPE credits to be earned during their three-year certification cycle to ensure proficiency and readiness in protecting their organization’s networks from unauthorized access and business-crippling attacks of today’s evolving threat landscape.
Failure to meet the CPE requirements within 30 days of the certificate’s expiration date will result in suspension of certification.
