Treadstone 71 Cyber Intelligence Capability Maturity Model

Treadstone 71 Cyber Intel Training 2018  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.

What is Analysis?

  • This includes integrating, evaluating, and analyzing all available data—which is often fragmented and even contradictory—and distilling it into the final intelligence products, which highlight information on topics of immediate importance or make long-range assessments.
  • Analysts, who are subject-matter specialists, absorb incoming information, evaluate it, produce an assessment of the current state of affairs within an assigned field or substantive area, and then forecast future trends or outcomes.
  • They integrate data into a coherent whole, put the evaluated information in context, and produce finished intelligence that includes assessments of events and judgments about the implications of the information for your organization.

T71new1

  • Use structured analytic techniques and types of analysis
  • Analysts are encouraged to include alternative futures in their assessments and to look for opportunities to warn about developments abroad that could either provide threats to or opportunities for organizational security and policy interests.
  • Analysts also develop requirements for the collection of new information. From analysis, we move to analytic writing.

ON THE TREADSTONE 71 CYBER INTELLIGENCE TRADECRAFT TRAINING:

"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.
