We took the best from the two introductory classes and combined it with the two advanced Incident Responder and Digital Forensics lab classes to create a 5-day powerhouse course. Students are immersed in YARA, rapidly building rules to classifying files and craft fuzzy logic to heuristically find others that defy easy identification. In an interactive environment, students learn to rapidly identify files and then build profiles of fuzzy logic to overcome obstacles – overcoming the cyptors, packers, protectors and obfuscation that make classification a struggle. Students will use python to automate file classification with existing rules and to create new ones for unknown ones. When a student departs this class they will have practical understanding, confidence and experience to craft YARA rules for any file, in any level of protection against detection.
Through the user interactive labs the student will learn:
Threat intelligence, incident response, and information security professionals, forensic investigators or others with a requirement to classify and profile files.
Digital Forensic experience suggested.
Threat Intelligence experience suggested.
YARA experience suggested.
Python experience suggested.
Course Duration: 5 Days, 8:30AM-5PM
