"Fantastic class that gets to the foundational aspects of traditional tradecraft. We studied hard examining recent attack campaigns. The analysis training prepared me for real-world efforts. Have to say this is one of the best classes I have ever taken having taken many from SANS.  SANS does not compare. They are more of a class mill today.  The Treadstone 71 course material is unique, focused, and timely."

“This is one of the best, if not the best, Cyber Threat Intelligence training course I've attended.”


Ironically, said Bardin, it was Stuxnet that led Iran to enhance its offensive capability: ‘If Stuxnet had happened to the US or UK, it would have been seen as an act of war. In Iran, it made them invest heavily in offensive cyber operations.’

He revealed that 18 percent of Iranian university students are studying computer science – a cyber warfare talent pool.
