CIFR: Cyber Incident Forensic Response

IACIS started down the path of an incident response class about 7-8 years ago.  We developed the Network Forensic Analysis (NFA) class and taught it for several years. It was a one week class that focused on the network level investigation, primarily covering a variety of logs and how to analyze them.  We quickly concluded that we were still missing out on a lot of endpoint information, so we expanded it to two weeks.  This became the Cyber Incident Forensic Response (CIFR) class, which teaches investigation concepts for both the network and endpoint levels.  While the class doesn’t make a student an expert in all these areas, the level of training is deep and broad enough so the student understands the concepts and processes and can apply them to an investigation, gaining competency the more the skills are used.

Many class attendees fall into one of these categories:

  • LE tasked with conducting or supporting intrusion investigations
  • LE who have completed all other classes and are still looking for something to grow their skillset
  • LE anticipating retiring in the next few years and wanting to develop skills suitable for corporate life
  • Corporate IT security
  • Corporate IT admins
