Cyber Threat Intelligence Focus Area

This focus area is designed to provide a foundation for students to understand the complexities of modern telecommunications, distributed enterprise software solutions, and prepare them to understand the information management implications for cybersecurity, ethical hacking, cyber intelligence, and management of cyber threats. Students will learn the methods for analyzing and curating data to attribute cyber attacks to malicious actors and gain skills such as cyber risk assessment, identification and exploitation of cyber vulnerabilities and implementation of cyber threat investigations that will enable them to enter and immediately succeed in the cybersecurity workforce.


Graduates are poised for careers as:

  • Cyber threat intelligence analysts
  • Cyber threat hunters
  • Cybersecurity analysts
  • Information risk analysts
  • Governance, risk, compliance analysts
  • Cybersecurity engineers

Note: The Cyber Threat Intelligence focus area is in review. We are excited to update and expand our curriculum offerings. For more information, please contact the MIM academic advisor. Courses are listed in their estimated semester of being offered.
Current students should speak with their academic advisor and refer to the MIM handbook or MIM Student Portal on ELMS for suggested academic plans.
