Certified Threat & Malware Analyst (CTMA)

For defenders to become more relevant in disrupting the kill chain, it is imperative that they also rapidly evolve their detection strategies. No longer are static rule-based detections or simple keyword searches going to help SOC teams to identify advanced threats in their environment. A more proactive approach is the need of the hour.

At Network Intelligence, we are conducting our flagship Certified Threat & Malware Analyst (CTMA) training. The 18-hours online course is spread across 4 days 4.5 hours each. The CTMA training is focused on the coverage of both Malware Analysis and Threat Hunting. It is designed to ensure that all aspects have a real-life scenario-based approach explaining the core steps needed to perform either Malware Analysis or Threat Hunting.
