Treadstone 71 Selected to Deliver at the RSA Conference 2018 San Francisco

Foundations for a Strong Intelligence Program
April 18, 9AM-11AM RSA Conference
This Lab will explore key aspects of building a strong and long-lasting cyberthreat intelligence program. We’ll review methods of threat intelligence platform selection and bake-off techniques as well as cover stakeholder analysis and priority intelligence requirements. Additionally, we’ll practice collection planning and mission management as well as how to establish effective reporting and dissemination capabilities.

Cyber CounterIntelligence – Deception, Distortion, Dishonesty
April 18, 1:45PM-2:30PM RSA Conference
Deception, distortion, dishonesty are core to social media postings. Our adversaries use these methods concocting stories that create illusions that are meant to leave us divided. The talk will cover methods of countering their messaging while applying these tactics to protect your own organization and brand. Moving from intelligence to counterintelligence is the natural next step in our evolution.

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. (

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.

Cyber Threat Intelligence – All-Source Intelligence – Successful Program Build

Treadstone 71 has a history of solving difficult security and intelligence issues. Recently we were approached by a very large firm to address their cyber intelligence and cyber threat intelligence issues. This organization (ORG A) had spent millions on cybersecurity vendors. The task given to these vendors included building an all-source intelligence program. They failed to deliver. ORG A performed a search to find an organization able to deliver on the promises of others. All recommendations pointed to Treadstone 71. Cyber CounterIntel Tradecraft Certification
