Defending Internet Accessible Systems (IR204)

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) is proud to offer the Incident Response Training event, Defending Internet Accessible Systems Cyber Range Training (IR204), on Thursday, April 25, 2024, from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm EDT. The 200-level training events are open to government employees and contractors across federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial government, educational partners, and critical infrastructure partners. Please use your organization email address when registering. 

This course is ideal for those working in cybersecurity roles who are interested in learning technical incident response skills and requires active engagement from all participants. The course assumes a mixed audience (e.g., from disparate teams and organizations) of mixed capability. 

Participants will be introduced to tactics and strategies that enable them to protect their organizations from attacks against internet accessible system(s) (i.e., Internet Accessible System Attacks or IAS), through awareness of individual and organizational points of vulnerability. 

Experience these benefits and more: 

  • Practice in a realistic environment: Define IAS Vulnerabilities and their indicators. 

  • Learn how to implement CISA guidance: Course exercises include implementation of the recommendations in BOD 19-02. 

  • Identify and mitigate vulnerabilities in real time: Students will identify common methods of scanning for vulnerabilities, analyzing event logs, and modifying firewall rules.  

  • Expert facilitation and peer discussion: Throughout the course, expert cybersecurity engineers will moderate discussion and conduct a recovery debrief for the exercises. Participants are also encouraged to help one another and offer relevant input to address peers' questions. 

This exercise is a step-by-step, facilitated experience that uses a keyboard approach to understand these topics in a realistic technical environment. 

Approved registrants must attend a mandatory student technical check the day before the training to establish a connection to the course content and lab environment.
