Thomas Roccia |  Roberto Rodriguez

"This training is a unique opportunity for students to step up in their careers by becoming advanced threat researchers. We will be teaching the skills of tomorrow, today, so that every participant will be ahead of the industry standard. More than training, we aim to provide a career transformation."

Format: 3 Days In-person

Audience level: Beginner, Intermediate

Threat intelligence plays a critical role in an organization’s defense strategy, empowering defenders with deep understanding of adversary tradecraft and their threat landscape. For a threat intelligence analyst, the abilities to collect and connect information from a wide variety of data sources and dive deep into malicious software are essential. Imagine streamlining these processes by building your own tools and leveraging artificial intelligence. In this 3-day class, you will learn to use Python to collect and analyze threat data, build your own custom tools, and integrate the power for Generative AI to transform your technical approach to threat intelligence. We will combine theory with practical, hands-on exercises, giving you the opportunity to apply all these concepts in real-world scenarios. By the end of this course, you will have the necessary skills and tools to unlock new capabilities into your threat intelligence cycle.
