Growing the Analyst

Today, we see more and more attacks to our personal and corporate digital fingerprints, yet little is being done to prevent further intrusions. However, the OPS Consulting ‘Growing the Analyst’ curriculum, developed by Department of Defense contract analysts, is a foundational template for participants to build the knowledge, skills and abilities that are required to become a Cyber Analyst in today’s fast paced net environments. This curriculum focuses on both technical proficiency and non-technical core competencies that create practitioners who are job ready as soon as they finish training.
