Cyber Intelligence Research Consortium

Cyber intelligence--the acquisition and analysis of information to identify, track, and predict cyber capabilities, intentions, and activities to offer courses of action that enhance decision making--is vital to organizations that want to have a full understanding of their cyber environment and their exposure to threats. The Cyber Intelligence Research Consortium brings together organizations from a variety of sectors to exchange ideas, engage in hands-on activities, and learn from experts in the field.


Cyber Intelligence: What You Need to Know Now

Free Information Sessions in Pittsburgh and NYC

Join us in New York, Chicago, or PIttsburgh for an information session and workshop. Attendees will participate in human-centered design activities and a fictional threat scenario, and experts from the SEI will present information about a comprehensive approach to cyber intelligence as well as a look at the work of the Cyber Intelligence Research Consortium. Representatives from the Consortium will be on hand to answer any questions attendees may have regarding joining the Consortium.
