BOSTON, Mass. /Massachusetts Newswire/ — Treadstone 71 announced today that Jeff Bardin, Treadstone's Chief Intelligence Officer, has been selected to deliver Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) training at all 2012 SecureWorld Expo conferences. Bardin will teach "Introduction to OSINT" starting on March 28 in Boston.

"As the market shifts to cyber intelligence driven security, many companies are trying to figure out how to effectively target, gather, produce and analyze cyber intelligence," says Bardin. "The training is designed to help clarify the OSINT methods available to target and gather data points used to create actionable information and intelligence."

The SecureWorld Expo conferences are current, subject matter expert focused events where unadulterated, clear and concise cyber security topics are openly discussed. The first conference of 2012 will take place March 28 and 29 at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, Massachusetts. SecureWorld Expo also holds conferences in Atlanta, Houston, St. Louis, Dallas, Philadelphia, Detroit, Seattle, Charlotte and the San Francisco Bay area.

The Comprehensive National Cybersecurity Initiative (CNCI) calls for defense against the full spectrum of threats by enhancing U.S. counterintelligence (CI) capabilities and increasing the security of the supply chain for key information technologies. It also requires the strengthening of future cybersecurity environments by expanding cyber education. The Treadstone 71 Cyber Shafarat 2012 online training program combined with SecureWorld Expo supports the initiative with innovative courses that combine theoretical with practical hands on experience.

"Treadstone 71 and SecureWorld Expo are expanding cyber intelligence and CI education and awareness programs and workforce development to integrate CI into all cyber operations and analysis, while increasing employee awareness of the cyber CI threat," indicated Kerry Nelson, Managing Director, SecureWorld Expo. "The training and our conference content directly aligns with the National Counterintelligence Strategy of the United States of America and supports the other programmatic elements of the CNCI."

"The OSINT course is the tip of the iceberg when it comes to building an effective cyber intelligence program," stated Bardin. "Treadstone 71 offers always-on, online courses in cyber intelligence, cyber counterintelligence, cybercrime, cyber warfare doctrine, analysis, and cyber jihadist online methodologies, to name a few."
