IReV4.0: Certified Threat Intelligence Analyst (CTIA)


The growth and sophistication of cyber-attacks against enterprises and individuals have rendered traditional cybersecurity measures virtually obsolete. The headlines are seemingly endless; companies continue to get compromised, while those responsible for securing corporate networks fall on their swords. Cybercriminals – smart, highly organized, and driven by financial motivations and/or strongly-held personal beliefs – only need to find a single vulnerability to exploit. On the other side, those endeavouring to protect assets need to set up flawless defences. It’s impossible to defend against every possible exploit and threat vector.

Threat Intelligence is defined by Gartner as “evidence-based knowledge, including context, mechanisms, indicators, implications and actionable advice, about an existing or emerging menace or hazard to assets that can be used to inform decisions regarding the subject’s response to that menace or hazard.”

Threat Intelligence enables Businesses to provide the best possible defense against the most probable threats. It includes in-depth information about specific threats to help an organization protect itself from the types of attacks that could do them the most damage

With Intelligence and Automation equipping cybercriminals to conduct targeted and stealth attacks and we on the other side of the line have serious shortfalls on sharing intelligence. Threat Intelligence sharing are generally done within government agencies, Critical National Infrastructure organisations and it is NOT shared with the industry and vice versa. There is always a disconnect on intelligence sharing between government and corporations.

This workshop introduces attendees with the basics concepts of Threat Intelligence and take them thru the entire process of setting up a Threat Intel

Platform using MISP to consume all the intelligence from around 80+ global community feeds and also enables the attendees to share intelligence on malwares and attacks back to the community. This workshop also enables the attendees to integrate Threat Intelligence with their existing SIEM and other defense products.
