Practical Threat Intelligence

Threat Intelligence | August 1-2 & 3-4


Threat Intelligence is critical to the safety of organizations and most people still don't understand what it is and how to implement it in a practical manner. "Practical Threat Intelligence" will bring you up to speed using a range of hands-on labs to ensure that you walk away with the skills necessary to implement Threat Intelligence into your organization!
