Treadstone 71 Announces Cyber Intelligence Capability Maturity Model

Treadstone 71 developed a maturity model to help organizations determine the maturity of their cyber intelligence initiatives against the cyber intelligence common body of knowledge (CICBOK). The model provides strategic and operational aspects of your cyber intelligence maturity, where it needs to go, and where you should concentrate your attention to create more value for your business. Nearly 8 years in the making, the Treadstone 71 Cyber Intelligence Maturity Model uses traditional tradecraft as delivered by Sherman Kent and Richards Heuer, intelligence community standards, analytic standards, and experiential knowledge derived from years of training, assessing, and building cyber intelligence programs.

The Treadstone 71 Cyber Intelligence Capability Maturity Model (T71-CICMM) is a methodology used to develop and refine an organization’s cyber intelligence program. Not only is the model educational and practical skills for learning and developing expertise, but also a roadmap for building a cyber intelligence program. More information is available here:

It has not changed – Russian Maskirovka – Denial and Deception

I keep a vigil in a wilderness of mirrors
Where nothing here is ever what it seems

Yuri Nosenko

“Instead of being relieved to hear that the Soviets had not been involved in the assassination, James Jesus Angleton, the C.I.A.’s legendarily suspicious counterintelligence chief, and others in the spy trade thought Mr. Nosenko’s apparent defection was a trick.”

“After all, the agency had suffered a series of setbacks, including the unmasking and execution of two Russian intelligence officials who had been spying for the C.I.A. inside the Soviet Union.”

Not much has changed with respect to Russian counterintelligence activities but for the medium of use. The Internet affords great opportunities for denial and deception, counterdenial and counterdeception, ruses, feints, doubleplays, and other methods of manipulation and influence management.

Training Report – Treadstone 71 Cyber Intelligence Tradecraft Professional Certification

“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!cyberintelt71

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

Full Suite of Cyber-Threat Intelligence and Counterintelligence Courses Ready for Global Delivery

Treadstone 71 today announced a full suite of Cyber and Threat Intelligence and CounterIntelligence training courses. The courses drive the expansion of Treadstone 71’s accelerated, academically validated, intelligence training to global markets. Treadstone 71 delivers courses in California, Virginia, Canada, the United Kingdom, and the Netherlands and is set to expand to the Middle East and Asia later this year. (www.planetreg.com/T71IntelTraining)

Treadstone 71 offers a compelling business model that delivers rapid cyber and threat intelligence strategic planning, program build, and targeted training in sectors such as financial services, government, healthcare, energy, and other critical infrastructure verticals. Treadstone 71’s format, curriculum, and instruction model are helping meet critical global demand for cyber and threat intelligence and analysis expertise. Treadstone 71 training provide graduates with an attractive pathway to compensation increases, career progression, and much-needed attention to intelligence. The organization has been teaching cyber intelligence at the Master’s level and commercially for seven years. New courses include a focus on campaign management, the use of Tor, Tails, I2P, and Maltego as well as covering persona development and management. Students create a series of identities, character development, and dimensions, storyline, plot synopsis, story drive and limit, story weaving, applicability, scope, tools to be used, methods of interaction with other identities, engaging secondary characters, refining targeting while developing a campaign to gain street credentials.

“Our courses provide academic instruction combined with real-world, hands-on collection, analysis, analytic writing, dissemination, and briefings that many liken to an apprenticeship,” said Jeff Bardin, Chief Intelligence Officer for Treadstone 71. “Our curriculum follows the teachings of Sherman Kent and Richards Heuer giving students the tools necessary to perform targeted collection, structured analysis while authoring reports modeled after intelligence community standards. We teach methods of cyber infiltration, information and influence operations, counterintelligence strategies, mission based counterintelligence, denial and deception, and counter-denial and deception.”

Treadstone 71 courses are validated and proven by intelligence professionals creating job-ready threat intelligence professionals for global organizations suffering a talent shortage. “Intelligence analysis as an inherently intellectual activity that requires knowledge, judgment, and a degree of intuition,” continued Bardin. “Treadstone 71’s intelligence, counterintelligence, and clandestine cyber HUMINT training and services help organizations transform information into intelligence pertinent to their organization.”

Analysis includes integrating, evaluating, and analyzing all available data — which is often fragmented and even contradictory — and preparing intelligence products. Despite all the attention focused on the operational (collection) side of intelligence, analysis is the core of the process to inform corporate stakeholders. Analysis as more than just describing what is happening and why; identifying a range of opportunities… Intelligence Analysis is the key to making sense of the data and finding opportunities to take action. Analysis expands beyond the technical focus of today providing organizations with core capabilities for business, competitive, cyber, and threat intelligence.

Treadstone 71’s Cyber Intelligence Tradecraft Certification is the gold standard in the industry today derived from both academia and from Treadstone 71’s experience in building cyber intelligence programs at Fortune 500 organizations worldwide.
