Each certification is mapped to the National Cybersecurity Workforce Framework (NCWF). The Framework organizes cybersecurity into seven high-level Categories, each comprised of several specialty areas, work roles, knowledge, skills, abilities, and tasks. These seven high-level Categories are aligned directly to the CCE® Program’s certification Concentration Areas. Candidates often prepare for an exam by using a variety of resources that familiarize them with the authoritative sources and the exam’s concentration area.
Third-party products and services, including course instructors have helped many candidates to close knowledge and skill gaps. Lunarline does not endorse any particular provider and encourages candidates to use a variety of tools and resources that will enhance their understanding of relevant principles and the exam’s concentration area.
Successful completion of this exam will demonstrate a candidates ability to implement The NIST 800- 53 R4 Incident Response, Personal Security and Contingency Planning security controls. The candidate will demonstrate their ability to identify events and incidents along with the need for response. They will demonstrate policy, plan, and procedure elements.
The candidate will exhibit their knowledge in understanding and implementing incident response team structures, models, and response personnel. They will be able to demonstrate all steps in handling an incident from preparation to post-incident activities.
Candidates must possess at least 3 years relevant experience in incident handling or incident response in order to obtain the expert level credential. The associate level credential will be awarded to those who pass the exam, but do not have the required experience. The credential can be elevated to expert level upon attaining the required experience. Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org to start the experience verification process.
Independence:The Lunarline SCS Training Program and Certification Program are independent from one another. Although they may target the same NICE category, specialty area, work role, and/or authoritative sources, certification exams are not based on any SCS training. Taking SCS training is NOT required and the CCE Program Certification Body does not guarantee that an individual will pass nor have any advantage based on participation with SCS training.
Continuing Education:The Lunarline SCS Training Program and other third-party vendors offer activities, products and services across the country that qualify as Professional Development Credits (PDCs) that target the same NICE category, specialty area, work role, and/or authoritative sources as our certifications. We encourage candidates to use a variety of tools and resources that will enhance their understanding of relevant principles and reflect their learning styles and needs.
