The C-Suite craves new information that drives business decisions. Cyber and Threat Intelligence is just what is needed! Are you in need of awareness of the intelligence lifecycle and how intelligence drives your security team and supports your business? Do you know what Cyber Intelligence and Cyber Threat Intelligence are? This is a one-day (6 hour) course designed to educate corporate leadership and stakeholders in cyber and threat intelligence. There is a general awareness of the need to establish intelligence functions. Many organizations do not have a fundamental understanding of what intelligence is, where the function should reside, how it is different from business and competitive intelligence while understanding the overlaps and natural points of integration. We target corporate leadership delivering a clear and coherent training that equips stakeholders with the understanding and tools they need to assist in building a successful intelligence program.

We will cover strategic plan development, approaches, intelligence risk and standard operating procedures helping to tune your threat intelligence strategy to mitigate risk.
