CTIA: Certified Threat Intelligence Analyst

Certified Threat Intelligence Analyst (CTIA) is a training and credentialing program designed and developed in collaboration with cybersecurity and threat intelligence experts across the globe to help organizations identify and mitigate business risks by converting unknown internal and external threats into known threats. It is a comprehensive specialist-level program that teaches a structured approach for building effective threat intelligence.

The CTIA program was based on a rigorous Job Task Analysis (JTA) of the job roles involved in the field of threat intelligence. This program differentiates threat intelligence professionals from other information security professionals. It is a highly interactive, comprehensive, standards-based, intensive 3-day training program that teaches information security professionals to build professional threat intelligence.

More than 40 percent of class time is dedicated to the learning of practical skills, and this is achieved through EC-Council labs. Theory to practice ratio for CTIA program is 60:40, providing students with a hands-on experience of the latest threat intelligence tools, techniques, methodologies, frameworks, scripts, etc. CTIA comes integrated with labs to emphasize the learning objectives.

The CTIA lab environment consists of the latest operating systems including Windows 10 and Kali Linux for planning, collecting, analyzing, evaluating, and disseminating threat intelligence.
