3 videos  //  34 minutes of training

Course description

Before threat actors launch their attack in earnest, they gather information. The information available to them is almost always a result of their target’s behavior. The attacker simply does their own research, and suddenly they’ve made their job a lot easier. You need to analyze just what attackers can learn from your organization in order to get a better picture of what they’ll attack, and how.
