Washington, DC (Arlington, VA) - Structured Analytic Techniques for Cyber Intelligence

Washington, DC (Arlington, VA) - Structured Analytic Techniques for Cyber Intelligence

The Treadstone 71 uses Structured Analytic Techniques from Richards Heuer as well as others collected over the years for use in preparing your analysis as well as documenting, tracking, and analyzing your evidence. Highly skilled intelligence analysts with anywhere from 8 to 15 years of experience develop keen skills in intuition. Many do not care to use structured techniques while others combine intuition and structured techniques for a balanced mixed based on available data, time available, and the situation at hand.

We teach these techniques with hands-on activities using cyber threat events from the headlines showing their fundamental value when to use them, how they are used and where they contribute to the final products. We help you structure the data, analyze the data, and prepare the data for final analysis. The course covers non-inclusively:
