Cyber Fire Foundry prepares attendees for tomorrow’s challenges by teaching how to create custom solutions for investigating cybersecurity incidents.

Rather than teaching cookie cutter recipes, our experienced staff will help you develop the ability to create innovative solutions to pick apart whatever arrives after you leave our event.

Classes

Foundry 2024-2 begins with 3 days of hands-on class instruction, guided by seasoned cyber security responders.

Class Details

Collaborative Exercise

The rest of the event places participants on teams, working together on many challenges, in a collaborative exercise. The exercise has been custom crafted to provide opportunities to apply new skills and further expand on practical learning.


Today’s cybersecurity threats are growing exponentially, but so is the workforce to combat those threats. You can be part of the solution, which is why we want you to join us.

We hope you can join us! Please reach out to cyberfire@hq.doe.gov if you have any questions.
