Conducting Forensic Cisco & CyberOps Technologies (CBRFIR)


Exam Description: Conducting Forensic Analysis and Incident Response Using Cisco Technologies for

CyberOps v1.0 (CBRFIR ) is a 90-minute exam that is associated with the Cisco CyberOps

Professional Certification. This exam tests a candidate’s knowledge of forensic analysis and incident

response fundamentals, techniques, and processes. The course Conducting Forensic Analysis and

Incident Response Using Cisco Technologies for CyberOps helps candidates to prepare for this exam.

The following topics are general guidelines for the content likely to be included on the exam. However,

other related topics may also appear on any specific delivery of the exam. To better reflect the contents

of the exam and for clarity purposes, the guidelines below may change at any time without notice.

4.1 Describe antiforensic techniques (such as, debugging, Geo location, and obfuscation)

4.2 Analyze logs from modern web applications and servers (Apache and NGINX)

4.3 Analyze network traffic associated with malicious activities using network monitoring

tools (such as, NetFlow and display filtering in Wireshark)

4.4 Recommend next step(s) in the process of evaluating files based on distinguished

characteristics of files in a given scenario
