Reviews from Our Summer Cohort

Working for Advanced Intelligence this past summer was an invaluable experience. With realms of attack and defense increasingly shifting to the digital sphere, threat intelligence and the ability to anticipate digital threats are of the utmost importance. Working as a cyber threat intelligence intern allowed me to gain an understanding of the current threat climate while also making a tangible impact in such a critical area through daily threat reporting.”

We Stand for Our Communities

As former refugees, we started AdvIntel as a community-oriented security company. AdvIntel's monitoring and intelligence initiatives are inextricably connected to the protection of communities. We have provided immediate ransomware remediation, as well as free intelligence to prevent breaches and extortion aimed at education and religious institutions, US Native Tribes authorities, hospitals, and NGOs. Amidst COVID-19, we have established a free alerting and intelligence sharing initiative to inform US healthcare agencies of any ongoing or potential cyber activity which may impact their efforts in fighting the pandemic.
