• Online, Instructor-Led
Course Description

This online Part 2 & 3 course covers the initial aspects of building a proper cyber intelligence program. We begin from nothing supplying guidance proven through program build campaigns across different verticals and four continents. We designed the course to guide organizations in their cyber and threat intelligence program builds through online lectures, demonstrations, and templates covering the full intelligence lifecycle at a minimum. After years of teaching intelligence courses and delivering intelligence programs to clients, Treadstone 71 now offers this step-by-step course. We take students through the strategic planning process, goals and objectives creation, stakeholder analysis, adversary targeting and threat matrices creation, priority intelligence requirements, collection planning, structured analytic technique usage, analysis, maturity assessments, SOP development, threat intelligence platform selection, analytic writing, and dissemination non-inclusively.

Learning Objectives

The program includes instructional videos tied to content with periodic direct access to Treadstone 71 for client deliverable reviews. We supply templates and examples that you can use, change, or get ideas from. Artifacts specifically designed for past clients. The peer-review process follows a standard cycle including comments, suggestions, recommendations, and examples of previously finished products. Treadstone71 also offers regular ‘professor’ office hours for Q&A as requested in Office Hour Packs. The program follows proven methods established over the years while creating intelligence programs. Clients move at a regular pace that corresponds with their internal schedules that Treadstone 71 helps to set up with the client. We offer the program in different definitive sections giving students time to work artifacts, ideas, and the program with their stakeholders. The program also offers the standard Cyber Intelligence Tradecraft Certification training as an add-on. Parts 2 & 3 cover cyber intelligence team functions and capabilities needed to build and run a highly efficient cyber intelligence program.
