The Treadstone 71 Difference
Published: Sunday, 14 February 2016 14:25
We are nothing like competitors who are rooted in defensive posture actions with a pedigree in reverse engineering malware and providing defensive solutions for that malware. Most come from anti-virus and law
enforcement backgrounds where 'see, detect, and arrest' is their mantra. They offer technology solutions based upon this method of protection. Although they do provide information on adversaries, the information is based on the technology. Most are VC funded and need to sell product and do so as a lead requirement. Technology is not the solution only a tool. Treadstone 71 is profitable without VC overhead and have only your best interests at hand. We are not an MSSP. Treadstone 71 does not sell product. We are independent of technology companies and not beholden to venture capital overhead. We are not cyber carpetbaggers.
What Treadstone 71 provides is a full-spectrum solution that takes the information you provide in your SOC and incident response functions combining that with complete political, economic, social, technological, environmental, legislative, industrial, educational, and religious aspects of the adversary as well as adversary dossiers and organizational structures. What you receive from Treadstone 71 is detailed information and intelligence on your adversary that far surpasses the technical realm. Where Treadstone 71 service excels is in the ability to provide you with techniques, methods, capabilities, functions, strategies, and programs to not only build a fully functional intelligence capability, but a sustainable program rooted in stakeholder requirements and needs. Treadstone 71 is rooted in strong military and intelligence community backgrounds.

Treadstone 71 Cyber Intelligence Program Development

Treadstone 71 Cyber Intelligence Program - Align with the needs of leadership
Years ago, Treadstone 71 crafted a series of training classes at the Master's level for students eager to learn about cyber intelligence. Since then, Treadstone 71 continued to hone the courses to current events and organizational needs. Organizations need training in cyber intelligence. All too often we find a dire lack of understanding outside of collection. Most organizations have staff that are proficient at collecting data well. But the next steps in the cyber intelligence lifecycle is lacking. Our training solves that problem providing students with the tools necessary to organize, produce, analyze and deliver recommendations and opportunities to leadership.
We also found a desire of organizations to assist in the build out of their programs. On several occasions, Treadstone 71 provided oversight and guidance to companies looking to build their own capabilities. Most see significant dollars going to vendors who provide regular reports but the reports are from a create once - sell many paradigm. Treadstone 71 teaches you how to fish.

Published: Wednesday, 19 February 2014 03:00
Many in the market place today serve up data and information as intelligence. They focus almost exclusively on collection and collection feeds to some sort of visual tool that presents pictures of links, some with trends and a few with patterns and tendencies.
