The candidate is expected to have a good breadth of knowledge in all areas of threat intelligence and proven experience in operational security, data collection / analysis and intelligence production.
The exam will assess the candidate’s ability to conduct engagements that produce threat intelligence in a realistic, legal and safe manner, ensuring the customer is provided with actionable intelligence which can be used to increase security and reduce corporate risk.
The examination consists of three components:
- multiple choice
- a selection of long form questions that require detailed written answers
- a written scenario based question
Candidates are required to meet or exceed a two-thirds pass mark in all sections independently in order to pass the exam overall. If a candidate fails an element, the entire examination must be retaken.
