Class Quotes:

“The Cyber Intelligence Training delivered and created by Jeff Bardin will add rapid returns to both Cyber Intel Analysts, and your Security Operations.  This very thorough class adequately prepares the student for your Cyber Intelligence function.  This class starts with the history of intelligence as a tradecraft and the evolution to the digital corporate world.   Along the way, each student receives quality instruction and hands on experience with today’s OSINT tools.  This is necessary for anyone new to Cyber Intelligence, and complimentary to any Security Operations within your enterprise. This 4.5-day class provides the student with the resources and fundamentals needed to establish cyber intelligence as a force as both a proactive offensive step, and a counter intelligence-contributing arm of your larger team.”

“The class was very detail orientated with a strong focus on the work of Cyber threats and how to better secure your assets against potential attacks.  For most scenarios we went through he had an open source tool, or the link to a paid version, to monitor or prevent the attacks from occurring.  He was able to answer each and every question asked with specific details, and then some.  I would sign up again right away for any other classes offered by Jeff”

“The Cyber Intelligence training offered by Treadstone71 is definitely an outstanding course and I recommend it for any organization looking to implement an intelligence capability. Jeff Bardin is extremely knowledgeable in the intelligence tradecraft and applies it to the cyber realm in a way that is understandable, exciting to learn, and makes it easy to achieve “quick wins” in the organization after completing his class.  Jeff provided the class with a multitude of tools, templates, and documents that can immediately be used by any organization focused on intelligence collection and analysis. Jeff arrived well prepared to teach the course and one of the most impressive aspects of the class was that he presented the material in a way that displayed his personal knowledge and experience in the field rather than relying solely on book material.  We intend to continue leveraging Jeff’s services as we mature our cyber intelligence capability and highly recommend Treadstone71’s services to any organization.”

Clients understand the extent and depth of their Internet attack surface.

Why do we need skills in cyber intelligence?

Today we deal with data and data points. Methods of analysis are not used nor understood. Information Technology staff struggle delivering actionable information useful to organization leadership. In fact, the concept of what is actionable is difficult for IT staff to articulate. Below are current deficiencies organizations face understanding the data they receive and do not receive:

  • Data is technical in nature.
  • Data is dictated by nuances and bias of the technologies in place.
  • Data is used for detection.
  • Data is not effectively organized for analysis.
  • Analysis is limited to technical trending and patterns.
  • Analysis, if it occurs, does not follow rigor and standard methods.
  • Reporting to senior leadership does not address their concerns and needs.
  • Metrics are not actionable, timely or accurate.
  • Personal agendas are part of the reporting.
  • Alternatives are not considered.
  • Analytic bias are unconsciously included in reports skewing the results.
  • There is an unwillingness to consider other judgments.
  • Outside experts are not used.
  • Responsibility for the judgment(s) is not collective.
  • Sources are not validated for credibility.
  • Sources are not verified for relevance.
  • Data and information gaps are not understood or communicated.
  • Concepts surrounding critical thinking are foreign to IT organizations.
  • Admission of mistakes is limited and/or hidden.
  • Data and information is not usable or complete.

Cyber Intelligence Training and Services ensures clients:

  • Identify the differences and intersections between open source data, open source information and open source intelligence
