Colorado Springs, CO June 18, 2020 – The National Cybersecurity Center (NCC) is pleased to announce its support for the Cyber Resilience Institute (CRI) and its c-Watch 2020 cyber intelligence training.
The NCC is a strong advocate for the advancement of cybersecurity-related trainings to fill a critical need for more cyber-aware and active students and professionals. The c-Watch 2020 training offers a three-week intensive course on the interdisciplinary domain of cyber intelligence, social media, and international cyberspace conflict. In a time of unprecedented proliferation of misinformation and disinformation, the NCC believes this training is fundamental to increasing the security of our citizens, businesses and government.
The training will provide students with access to open source tools, and training on those tools to include threat intelligence platforms, social media tools, analytic frameworks, and collection management resources. Students can sign up for one of three separate tracks: Social Media Threat Hunting, Cyber Observable Hunting, and Cyber Policy.
The course begins June 22, 2020 and is open to students, mid-career professionals and anyone who wants to learn cyber threat intelligence. More information on registration can be found at the following link: https://www.cyberresilienceinstitute.org/c-watch-2020/
