Certified Threat Intelligence Analyst
At the drop of a hat, new viruses and malware are discovered. We are constantly confronted with new types of malware and soon find another. Many organizations are also surrounded by unknown threat agents that aren’t visible to everyone. To mitigate unknown and known threats effectively, organizations require a professional approach.
The market for “Threat intelligence analysts” is growing. One report claims that the threat intelligence market will be worth $12.6 billion in 2025 (Certified Target Intelligence Analyst).
EC-Council offers the CTIA (Certified Threat Intelligence Analyst) certification to meet this demand. CTIA helps to convert unknown threats and threats into known threats so they can be effectively dealt with. According to the EC- Council, the CTIA is a method-driven program. It uses a holistic approach that covers concepts such as building a report to disseminate threat intelligence and planning the threat intelligence project.
The threat intelligence analyst uses a proactive approach to information security rather than a reactive one. He collects intelligence data from different sources and maps it to the real threats an organization might face every day. This helps to reduce cyber threats to any organization.
