4 Sessions:

Instructors: Chris Brenton

Price: $395

  • Live presentation
  • PDF copy of all of the slides
  • Hands-on labs
  • Pcaps of multiple C2 channels for analysis

So far we’ve had over 10,000 students attend our one-day network threat hunting course. Many have asked that we provide an extended class with more hands-on lab time. That is exactly what we have rolled into this 16-hour course!

We will spend most of this class analyzing pcap files for Command and Control (C2) communications in order to identify malware back channels. It is assumed that the student will already understand the basics of network threat hunting, so we can immediately jump into applying that knowledge. The goal will be to create a threat hunting runbook that you can use within your own organization in order to identify systems that have been compromised.
