Prerequisites: Successful completion of the Cybersecurity Fundamentals for the ECC course

This course is built on the foundation of the Cybersecurity Fundamentals for the ECC course. This two day, in-person course will provide multiple Tabletop Exercises and infiltration techniques.

This course is designed for Public Safety Information Technology (IT) personnel, IT Leadership personnel who work on critical networks within emergency communications centers (ECCs) and ECC supervisory staff charged with IT and Cybersecurity responsibilities.
