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.
