Advanced Digital Forensics, Incident Response, and Threat Hunting Training


Advanced Digital Forensics, Incident Response, and Threat Hunting Training Course Hands-on

Threat hunting and Incident response tactics and procedures have evolved rapidly over the past several years. Your team can no longer afford to use antiquated incident response and threat hunting techniques that fail to properly identify compromised systems, provide ineffective containment of the breach, and ultimately fail to rapidly remediate the incident. Incident response and threat hunting teams are the keys to identifying and observing malware indicators and patterns of activity in order to generate accurate threat intelligence that can be used to detect current and future intrusions.

This in-depth Advanced Digital Forensics, Incident Response, and Threat Hunting Training course provides responders and threat hunting teams with advanced skills to hunt down, identify, counter, and recover from a wide range of threats within enterprise networks, including APT nation-state adversaries, organized crime syndicates, and hactivism. Constantly updated, Advanced Digital Forensics, Incident Response, and Threat Hunting Training addresses today’s incidents by providing hands-on incident response and threat hunting tactics and techniques that elite responders and hunters are successfully using to detect, counter, and respond to real-world breach cases.

The Advanced Digital Forensics, Incident Response, and Threat Hunting Training course uses a hands-on enterprise intrusion lab – modeled after a real-world targeted APT attack on an enterprise network and based on APT group tactics to target a network – to lead you to challenges and solutions via extensive use of the SIFT Workstation collection of tools. During the Advanced Digital Forensics, Incident Response, and Threat Hunting Training lab exercises, you will identify where the initial targeted attack occurred and how the adversary is moving laterally through multiple compromised systems. You will also extract and create crucial cyber threat intelligence that can help you properly scope the compromise and detect future breaches.

Duration:6 days

Skills Gained:

• Learn and master the tools, techniques, and procedures necessary to effectively hunt, detect, and contain a variety of adversaries and to remediate incidents.
• Detect and hunt unknown live, dormant, and custom malware in memory across multiple Windows systems in an enterprise environment.
• Hunt through and perform incident response across hundreds of unique systems simultaneously using F-Response Enterprise and the SIFT Workstation .
• Identify and track malware beaconing outbound to its command and control (C2) channel via memory forensics, registry analysis, and network connection residue.
• Determine how the breach occurred by identifying the beachhead and spear phishing attack mechanisms.
• Target advanced adversary anti-forensics techniques like hidden and time-stomped malware, along with utility-ware used to move in the network and maintain an attacker’s presence.
• Use memory analysis, incident response, and threat hunting tools in the SIFT Workstation to detect hidden processes, malware, attacker command lines, rootkits, network connections, and more.
• Track user and attacker activity second-by-second on the system you are analyzing through in-depth timeline and super-timeline analysis.
• Recover data cleared using anti-forensics techniques via Volume Shadow Copy and Restore Point analysis.
• Identify lateral movement and pivots within your enterprise, showing how attackers transition from system to system without detection.
• Understand how the attacker can acquire legitimate credentials – including domain administrator rights – even in a locked-down environment.
• Track data movement as the attackers collect critical data and shift them to exfiltration collection points.
• Recover and analyze archives and .rar files used by APT-like attackers to exfiltrate sensitive data from the enterprise network.
• Use collected data to perform effective remediation across the entire enterprise.

Customize It:

With onsite Training, courses can be scheduled on a date that is convenient for you, and because they can be scheduled at your location, you don’t incur travel costs and students won’t be away from home. Onsite classes can also be tailored to meet your needs. You might shorten a 5-day class into a 3-day class, or combine portions of several related courses into a single course, or have the instructor vary the emphasis of topics depending on your staff’s and site’s requirements.
