Tactical Digital Forensics Training Course Description
This two-week Tactical Digital Forensics Training teaches students to perform the fast and efficient digital forensics required to discover and investigate an Advanced Persistent Threat. Students learn the types of tactics and procedures a threat actor uses to evade detection, and develop the real-world skills to locate malicious elements on a network and respond appropriately. Students acquire a fundamental understanding of how to effectively discover breaches and triage attacks within a network. A hands-on capstone exercise assesses students’ abilities in response to an intrusion detection incident and grades each individual on the use of forensics analysis techniques to determine the attack method, associated implants, embedded tools and files, attack timeline, and origin of the attack.
• Tailor this Tactical Digital Forensics Training course to your own unique requirements at little-to-no additional expense.
• If you are familiar with some aspects of this Tactical Digital Forensics Training course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
• We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the Tactical Digital Forensics Training course around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
• If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the Tactical Digital Forensics Training course in manner understandable to lay audiences.
