Training

This section aims to identify relevant training. It is not meant to be an exhaustive list of all training available, nor have we had the time to exhautively asess each course, but this should be a good starting point for folks looking for training in Cyber Threat Intelligence. If you are aware of other helpful resources, please do submit them to cti-sig@first.org so that we might share these with our members.
