Are you a former Service man or woman with an interest in becoming a threat analyst in information security or in fraud and financial crime? Have you used threat analysis tools like i2 Analyst Notebook in the Armed Forces and wish to gain a certification recognised by employers across the world? Read on …

Data and threat analytics is predicted to be one of the fastest-growing career fields, with industry experts predicting there will be 100,000 unfilled cyber security jobs in the UK by 2022. With such a high demand for cyber security professionals – and a notable shortage of talent ñ SaluteMyJob, IBM and the Corsham Institute created an innovative partnership in 2015 to offer free training to certify former and transitioning military personnel as users of IBMís threat analysis software – i2 Analystís Notebook. 

The next i2 course runs from 29 October to 2 November at Hartham Park in Corsham, Wiltshire, and spaces are still available. The course is a great foundation for anyone looking for employment as a data analyst, especially with organisations that use the i2 product. Recent graduates of the course have found successful employment at Satisnet and Santander – and, with such a huge demand for qualified cyber security professionals, this opportunity is one not to be missed.

You do not need experience of intelligence or policing to attend the course or succeed in these roles. Knowledge of the intelligence cycle is helpful, as is the ability to put yourself in the mind of a cyber attacker or organised crime professional, but it is your work ethic, problem-solving abilities and team skills that will best help you to succeed in this type of employment in the commercial world.
