A holder of the CDCP has demonstrated the knowledge, skill, and practical application to work within a security operations team.
The CDCP is a practical assessment of the taker's skills and ability. Those attempting the CDCP are challenged to not only solve the problems presented, but they must also provide comprehensive reports, evidence, and remediation steps to resolve them.
