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:

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.

Building a Mature Cyber Intelligence Program 11/2/2016, 4:00 pm – 4:45 pm, Cumberland I/J

http://www.issa.org/?issaconf_home

Senior Many organizations claim to be creating intelligence for their corporate stakeholders. Most believe technology solutions provide the same. Tools, techniques, and protocols / procedures of adversaries is nothing more than data and information unless properly collected, produced, organized, analyzed and disseminated. This discussion covers how to establish the proper strategy using proven intelligence tradecraft methods. We will cover areas of vision, mission, goals and initiative. The discussion guides the attendees through the process of development methods of collection, outlines areas for producing intelligence using structured analytic techniques while extracting the required issues from leadership for focused delivery.

Cyber Intelligence Tradecraft Certification

This course is highly specialized following intelligence community tradecraft. If you want purely technical, then this is not the course for you. If you want tradecraft that lays the foundation for a solid program, education that creates a lasting impact, then this is the course for you.

Your enemies scour blogs, forums, chat rooms and personal websites to piece together information that used to harm the government and commercial organizations. Learning about cyber intelligence, OSINT and Cyber-OPSEC effectively equips students with the tools to gather data points, transform these data points into actionable intelligence that prevents target attacks.

The course includes:

CYBINT1 – Collection Methods and Techniques, Collection Planning, PIRs, Collection Process Flow, Collection Tools and Targeting, Alignment with Hunt and Detect Needs, Ties to CSIRT, TTPs, IoCs, Threat Intelligence, Open Source Intelligence, All-Source Intelligence, Standard Glossary and Taxonomy – (Case Study 1)

Case Study Presentations

Lecture, Hands-on, Apprenticeship, in class exercises, student presentations, analytic products, templates, course material—40 CPEs (5-days – 40 hours)

All Case Studies use all methods, techniques, and tools referenced in the course material. The Case Studies used are straight from the headlines giving students real world experience during the class.

Cyber Counterintelligence

This course presents the student with foundational concepts and processes in the discipline of cyber counterintelligence with a focus on cyber counterintelligence missions, defensive counterintelligence, offensive counterintelligence, and counterespionage as these realms apply to traditional tradecraft, and how they are or will evolve into the cyber domain. By starting with traditional counterintelligence and progressing to cyber counterintelligence, the student will develop an appreciation for collection efforts, exploitation of potential threats, insider concerns, and the risks and benefits of counterintelligence.

With the expanding importance of the comprehensive and timely need for intelligence for nations as well as businesses, the student will explore the essential elements that make up the intelligence cycle with a focus on how these pivotal points are exploited. As part of this class, the exploration of the continued importance of critical thinking as well as out-of¬the-box analysis will be heavily leveraged to improve the critical-thinking skills of the students.  As cyber topics continue to evolve, the increased importance of cyber intelligence is growing and as such the protection of our intelligence cycles will expand as well; emphasizing the growing need to ensure our processes are not compromised in a cyber-dominated landscape.  Cyber Counterintelligence is one aspect and possibly one of the most crucial topics at the core of protecting our collection efforts. The potential for active defense or offensive cyber counterintelligence operations will be covered.
​
The course will rely heavily on individual research and group discussion to explore the world of cyber counterintelligence, and where applicable, make use of the student’s ability to do independent thinking and analysis of in-class problems assigned through weekly discussion threads. This course focuses on open source intelligence and adversaries while creating online personas to assist in data collection and information extraction. This introductory course examines open source intelligence collection as well as the availability and use of OSINT tools. Students will be able to understand the use methods of only anonymity, the fundamentals behind cyber persona development, enrollment in various social media sites and applications, and how these current methods can be employed in their organizations to assist in operational cyber security, their defense against adversaries, and passive data collection.  The establishment of cyber personas takes patience and time to create a credible resource. Parallel activities occur through the outline above. Treadstone 71 maintains separation from the client as required maintaining confidentiality of methods and processes.

Sitreps and current intelligence may redirect activities. The intent is to establish a program of cyber and open source intelligence that creates data streams for analysis. Data streams take the time to develop to establish links, trends, tendencies and eventually, anticipatory and predictive analysis. The desire is to move from a detective approach to one that is preventive while moving too predictive.

Target-Centric Open Source Intelligence

This course focuses on open source intelligence and adversaries while creating online personas to assist in data collection and information extraction. This introductory course examines open source intelligence collection as well as the availability and use of OSINT tools. Students will be able to understand the use methods of only anonymity, the fundamentals behind cyber persona development, enrollment in various social media sites and applications, and how these current methods can be employed in their organizations to assist in cyber operational security, their defense against adversaries, and passive data collection.  The establishment of cyber personas takes patience and time in order to create a credible resource. Parallel activities occur through the outline above. Treadstone 71 maintains separation from the client as required maintaining confidentiality of methods and processes. Sitreps and current intelligence may redirect activities. The intent is to establish a program of cyber and open source intelligence that creates data streams for analysis. Data streams take time to develop in order to establish links, trends, tendencies and eventually, anticipatory and predictive analysis. The desire is to move from a detective approach to one that is preventive while moving too predictive.

Adversaries scour blogs, forums, chat rooms and personal websites to piece together information that used to harm the government and commercial organizations. Learning about cyber intelligence, OSINT, and Cyber-OPSEC effectively equips students with the tools to gather data points, transform these data points into actionable intelligence that prevents target attacks.
