This CSX Practitioner (CSXP) Boot Camp is a five day, 50 CPE course offered to you by Intrinsec Security – an official training partner of ISACA.

Course Introduction

The CSX Practitioner (CSXP) Boot Camp is a 5-day, immersive cyber security training course designed to help you build critical technical skills by learning complex concepts and practice applying industry-leading methods. This ISACA authorized CSXP Boot Camp is conducted in a live, lab-based network environment – not a simulated environment like other courses. Students will go through complex cyber security scenarios based on recent, real-world scenarios and be given live incidents to detect and mitigate. Aligned with global cyber security frameworks.

This Boot Camp consists of at least 50% hands-on lab exercise, combined with instruction on key cyber security concepts. Each day of training represents a new lesson, focused on skills and concepts in one of five areas: (1) Identify, (2) Protect, (3) Detect, (4) Respond and (5) Recover. Each lesson covered in the course is matched with practice labs and tools, and attendees will receive a 6-month subscription to the virtual cyber lab environment where they can continue practicing and building technical skills.
