EC-Council Certified Threat Intelligence Analyst (CTIA)


Do you possess an analytical mind? Is critical thinking a part of who you are? Then you’ve come to the right place. A Certified Threat Intelligence Analyst (CTIA) acts as a force multiplier for organizations looking to reinforce their cyber defense security measures. Threat intelligence is akin to what conventional intelligence agencies across the world engage in to perceive and neutralize threats before any harm can be done. As a certified threat intelligence analyst, you’ll be at the vanguard of your organization’s cybersecurity ecosystem, keeping a 360 degree vigil on existing and foreseen/unforeseen threats. The Certified Threat Intelligence Analyst (CTIA) program is designed and developed in collaboration with cybersecurity and threat intelligence experts across the globe. The aim is to help organizations hire qualified cyber intelligence trained professionals to identify and mitigate business risks by converting unknown internal and external threats into quantifiable threat entities and stop them in their tracks. Much like a ‘hunter-killer’ team, you’ll be deployed as a ‘Blue Team’ operative, tasked with threat identification, and asked to employ the tools at hand to thwart active and potential cyberattacks.
