On this accelerated CREST Practitioner Threat Intelligence Analyst (CPTIA) course, you'll learn about the core concepts associated with cyber threat intelligence functions and acquire the necessary skills and knowledge required to operate effectively in support of a cyber threat analyst within a security operations centre (SOC).
