As a cyber security defender and investigator, we often just get to analyze an environment that suffered a ransomware attack after the ransomware execution, where we are trying to make our way back in time to understand the scope and initial infection vectors of a breach. However, knowing how attackers operate and having an understanding of their tools can help tremendously to conduct a more effective analysis and response and ultimately lower the impact of such attacks. This is why in this workshop we will teach you how to perform the common steps of every phase in a ransomware attack scenario as the attacker, from initial infection to impact.
Not everyone taking a pen test class will want to be a penetration tester. Hence, we have organized this class to be a well-rounded experience, allowing both aspiring red teamers and blue teamers to get the most out of it. This class will provide students with hands-on experience with all phases of a penetration test, from information gathering to reporting.
The course progresses from basic to very advanced practical OSINT techniques that you can use in your investigative routine. No special software, operating system, or paid licenses are required. Bookmarks for all tools and websites used will be provided for quick access.
Enterprises have been working tirelessly to improve their security postures through defense-in-depth approaches. Offensive teams have also been putting in long hours of research into bypassing the latest EDR’s and defensive products that keep them on their toes. Long gone “hopefully” are the days of hurdling an HTA file laced with a download cradle at a mature organization with a “Free iPad” ruse and watching your screen fill with incoming agents.
Do you want to level up your cloud penetration testing skills? The attack surface of many organizations has changed to include third-party hosted services such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform. In this training course, hacking concepts will be introduced for each of those services.
For most security teams, high operational tempo (measured in dumpster fire lumens) incentivizes analysts to stick to well-tailored playbooks that prioritize remediation at the expense of proper incident scoping and root cause analysis. Though modern endpoint security products have significantly improved host visibility, most critical incidents will require the acquisition and analysis of additional endpoint data. This course focuses on four core investigative competencies: endpoint data collection, investigative triage, incident response pivots, and root cause analysis.
