Cyber Threat Analysis Course by U.S. Cyber Consequences Unit (US-CCU)


The U.S. Cyber Consequences Unit (US-CCU) is organizing several cybersecurity courses that teach the techniques that have made the US-CCU the world leader in cyber threat analysis. The course will be taught by Scott Borg, the Director of the U.S. Cyber Consequences Unit, who originated many of the state-of-the-art methods for carrying out cyber threat analysis.

The topics that will be covered in this course include:

  • The six types of seriously dangerous cyber attackers and their distinctive qualities
  • The seven ways attackers can gain by cyber attacks and how to quantify these
  • The ways attackers select targets
  • Understanding how attractive a target a given business or agency would be, relative to other organizations
  • The four kinds of business damage cyber attacks can cause
  • How to identify the specific information systems that need defending and the specific kinds of attacks they need to be defended against
  • The four categories of capabilities necessary for each cyber attack and how to quantify these
  • How difficult or costly it would be for a given attacker to assemble these capabilities
  • The return-on-investment for a given cyber attack from an attacker’s standpoint
  • Possible warning signs that an attack is being prepared
  • The techniques for estimating how soon or how frequently a given cyber attack can be expected
  • The strategies for reducing cyber-attack threats

The Cyber Threat Analysis course is in DC on March 24th. It explains how to anticipate what attacks are coming, even if they haven’t been seen before, and how to estimate how soon or how likely they are to occur. You can subscribe for this training session on the following link:
