The Certified Threat Intelligence Analyst (CTIA) program is designed and developed in collaboration with cybersecurity and threat intelligence experts across the globe. The aim is to help organizations hire qualified cyber intelligence trained professionals to identify and mitigate business risks by converting unknown internal and external threats into quantifiable threat entities and stop them in their tracks. Much like a "hunter-killer" team, students will be deployed as a "Blue Team" operative, tasked with threat identification, and asked to employ the tools at hand to thwart active and potential cyberattacks.
