Tactical Digital Forensics
$7500 per person
This two-week course 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.
