"Humans are, by far, the weakest security link"
To be the leading provider of Cyber Intelligence professional training workshops and seminars, enabling organizations to become “Cyber Intelligent” by being more proactive to cyber attacks and reducing overall business risk.
WHO WE ARE
Several years ago, a core team of national security and intelligence professionals, technology company executives, and academic professors came together with the distinct purpose of educating and training business and government professionals to understand how and why cyber intelligence is vitally important to creating a more effective cyber security program.
Today, Cyber Intelligent Partners (CIP) is a multi-disciplinary team of thought leaders and subject matter experts from the intelligence, counterintelligence and national security policy communities, international business, Hi-tech companies, law enforcement communities, and academia with experience at the tactical, operational and strategic levels of complex organizations.
CIP has a deep bench of “Instructor Practitioners” who teach our Cyber Intelligence courses based upon decades of their own job expertise. Our Instructor Practitioners are recognized leaders in their fields.
WHAT WE DO
We educate and train professionals to effectively integrate cyber intelligence into existing cyber security programs, and to develop more collaborative teams across an enterprise today so they are better prepared to solve cyber challenges tomorrow.
CIP executives work with our client executives to design the right mix of courses and concepts to deliver the most relevant, effective training workshops and seminars to address their company’s greatest needs.
CIP’s 3 Key Initiatives:
Train professionals why and how to integrate cyber intelligence into an organization’s existing cyber security program.
Train an organization’s Tech Teams, Intel Analyst Teams, and Decision-Makers to work in collaboration to develop timely, effective reports, proactive breach prevention and early detection.
Train Executives and Board of Directors how and why cyber intelligence will increase the effectiveness of a cyber security program, decrease business risk, and implement a change management plan to maintain an organization’s adherence to the enhanced cyber security program.
CIP’s Training Workshops and Seminars accomplish these three key initiatives by presenting our proprietary CIP 6 Point Plan.
The CIP 6 Point Plan is tailored to guide professionals and organizations from their current cyber security posture through concise, easy to follow steps, to experiential training simulations, that will enable more effective team communications, reporting, active breach resolution, and prevention. At the completion of the CIP 6-Point plan, participants will receive either a Certificate of Completion or a Cyber Intelligence Professional Certification
Understanding the Whys!
Understanding a threat actor’s overall strategy, is understanding WHY they want to attack you. The more you understand why adversaries want to attack you, the more effectively you can proactively defend yourself.
Technical teams in industry and government organizations are increasingly capable of answering who was behind a cyber breach and how a cyber breach occurred, but knowing that is only half of the solution to improving the security of an organization’s overall mission.
In most cases, organizations do not need to develop a new repertoire of technical skills, but rather focus more attention and training to understand the nontechnical aspects of a cyber attack. These critical factors could have a significant impact on an organizations mission and business risk vulnerability, for which executives are directly responsible.
