GREENBELT, Md., May 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- "TrainACE's Advanced Threat Intelligence course prepares security professionals to always be one step ahead of attackers which preserves countless amounts of sensitive data and information. The continuous outpouring of cyber security resources from TrainACE is extremely beneficial in protecting network infrastructures of any size."
TrainACE is taking steps to fill the void in Threat Intelligence training and bring the information security community to new levels of preparedness. This is just the latest edition to their impressive lineup of information assurance resources. This security gap is becoming more noticeable with the growth and severity of recent attacks across the globe. The exposure of the Chinese Cyber Espionage Unit by Mandiant in their APT1 Report has brought increased attention to the seriousness of Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) attacks. These APT attacks are heavily funded hacking operations which target companies in an attempt to steal data. These attacks aren't always constructed with the most sophisticated types of malware, but when they reach the inboxes of unsuspecting victims they are often successful. Advanced Threat Intelligence provides the framework to understanding why hackers choose the methods of attack that they do. This is where TrainACE's Threat Intelligence training class enters the picture.
During this invaluable boot camp, attendees will be introduced to predictive analysis tools which allow security professionals to forecast future attacks. If data is aggregated correctly, it can be pieced together to form a puzzle. This puzzle is Threat Intelligence.
TrainACE has teamed up with Senior Threat Researcher Curt Shaffer to give attendees a free glimpse at what Threat Intel is. This one hour webinar is a crash course in analyzing malicious URLs. The passing of these types of URLs through email is one of the choice weapons of attackers. "This webinar is going to show everyone just how easy and quick it is to get to the bottom of the maliciousness of the URL and the possible threat to your company if someone visited the site," says Shaffer.
This is just the latest security initiative from TrainACE. They have developed and archived an impressive database of free ethical hacking resources available to the public anytime, anywhere. Advanced Security by TrainACE is a cyber security training company which specializes in live online Security+ training and other bleeding edge security classes.
