The training course and certification exam were created under the supervision of our Academic Advisory Board, comprised of Senior Security Analysts, SOC Managers, and other senior security roles; ensuring it is accurate, realistic, and applicable to modern security operations.View Academic Advisory Board >

The BTL2 exam is designed to practically assess students on the four domains covered in the training course by utilising a range of tools and techniques to investigate a realistic intrusion scenario. Students have access to the exam lab for up to 72 hours, and must submit their written report, based on a provided template, within this timeframe. The report has pre-built sections for items such as an executive summary, indicator list, malware analysis conducted, and investigation steps per system within the network.
