“This past week, I had the absolute pleasure of attending the 5-day Treadstone 71 Cyber Intelligence Tradecraft Professional Certification course along with three of my colleagues. Mr. Jeff Bardin was the instructor and his knowledge and depth in this area is exceptionally impressive!
The training allows students to gain a better understanding of the cyber intelligence life cycle, the role and value of cyber intelligence relative to online targeting and collection, in modern organizations, businesses, and governments at the completion of this course. In addition, students understand: the methods of online anonymity, the fundamentals behind cyber intelligence collection and analysis, and how these current methods can be employed in our organizations to assist in online operational security and in defense against adversaries. The course was a combination of lecture, hands-on and student deliverables seen by many as an apprenticeship. We completed 4 case studies throughout the week in varying subjects such as Iranian hackers, high financial networks, Russian SCADA equipment, etc.
I would highly recommend this course to anyone looking to further their knowledge in the cyber area. It will also allow you to become a better intelligence analyst, as a whole. Overall, it was a truly fantastic learning experience that is applicable in both our personal, as well as professional lives. I most certainly have a new appreciation for online security and safety.” – Recently certified student February 2017
