Limited Capacity seats available

This two-session training covers basic skills necessary to be an effective cyber analyst. The central course focus is analytical acumen, or “how to think.” Framing the analysis, context and data gathering are discussed in the morning session, starting with an introduction to the analytic process. Microanalysis, macroanalysis, and reporting are discussed in the afternoon. The session will cover logical fallacies and awareness of assumptions and biases. Practical application of portions of the analytic process will be interspersed through both sessions, building around a scenario of a company at risk while conducting its business processes.
