Our 2018 c-Watch Training program is set to begin April 30th. As in our past course offerings, our students can attend from any location and log-in at a time that is convenient. Our offering of 10-weeks with a follow-on Pop-Up Security Operations Center (SOC) exercise allows students the opportunity to get access to practicing professionals in the field of threat intelligence and, real-world experience in a SOC. This year we will be running the SOC during the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
Instruction is organized in three tracks, to enable students with diverse backgrounds to join an interdisciplinary team. The three tracks are: Policy, Tradecraft, and Social Media. Each is focused on growing knowledge along the intelligence continuum: collection – analysis – sharing & reporting.
