This course provides a solid baseline for cyber threat intelligence. You will learn how to leverage intelligence to understand adversary behavior and make use of indicators of compromise to detect and stop malware.
Security incidents have become harder to detect, mostly because of the increase in malware complexity and variety. In this course, Threat Intelligence: The Big Picture, you'll learn the foundational knowledge of Cyber Threat Intelligence. First, you'll explore how to classify indicators of compromise using industry standard methodologies. Next, you'll discover how to search for and consume existing intelligence about the threats that you're dealing with. Finally, you'll cover how to maintain the quality of malware detections with a solid set of best practices. When you're finished with this course, you'll have the skills and the knowledge of threat intelligence to implement it into your current incident handline process.

Course Overview Hello everyone. My name is Cristian Pascariu, and welcome to my course, Threat Intelligence: The Big Picture. I'm an information security professional, and my main goal is for you to start leveraging threat intel to improve threat detection, and gain insight into adversary techniques, tactics, and procedures. This course is built upon the concept of identifying malicious activity by focusing on the common patterns between the events in your environment and events associated with malicious behavior of cyber threats. Some of the major topics that we will cover include threat intelligence methodologies, searching for indicators of compromise, reconstructing the infection chain, sharing standards, and legal requirements. By the end of this course, you'll know the basics of threat intelligence, and how to get the most out of it. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with basic information security concepts. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn more about threat intelligence with the Threat Intelligence: The Big Picture course at Pluralsight.
