What You Will Learn

Enterprises today have thousands, maybe even hundreds of thousands - of systems ranging from desktops to servers, from on-site to the cloud. Although geographic location and network size have not deterred attackers in breaching their victims, these factors present unique challenges in how organizations can successfully detect and respond to security incidents. Our experience has shown that when sizeable organizations suffer a breach, the attackers seldom compromise one or two systems. Without the proper tools and methodologies, security teams will always find themselves playing catch-up, and the attacker will continue to achieve success.

FOR608: Enterprise-Class Incident Response & Threat Hunting focuses on identifying and responding to incidents too large to focus on individual machines. The concepts are similar: gathering, analyzing, and making decisions based on information from hundreds of machines. This requires the ability to automate and the ability to quickly focus on the right information for analysis. By using example tools built to operate at enterprise-class scale, students will learn the techniques to collect focused data for incident response and threat hunting. Students will then dig into analysis methodologies, learning multiple approaches to understand attacker movement and activity across hosts of varying functions and operating systems by using timeline, graphing, structured, and unstructured analysis techniques.

FOR608: Enterprise-Class Incident Response & Threat Hunting will teach you to:
  • Understand when incident response requires in-depth host interrogation or light-weight mass collection
  • Deploy collaboration and analysis platforms that allow teams to work across rooms, states, or countries simultaneously
  • Collect host- and cloud-based forensic data from large environments
  • Learn analysis techniques for responding to Linux operating systems
  • Correlate and analyze data across multiple data types and machines using a myriad of analysis techniques
  • Conduct analysis of structured and unstructured data to identify attacker behavior.
  • Enrich collected data to identify additional indicators of compromise
  • Develop IOC signatures and analytics to expand searching capabilities and enable rapid detection of similar incidents in the future
  • Track incidents and indicators from beginning to end using built-for-purpose incident response engagement tooling.
