E-CIFR: Enterprise Cyber Incident Forensic Response

The IACIS Enterprise Cyber Incident Forensic Response (E-CIFR) class is a natural follow-on for the IACIS CIFR class.  It is an expansion of skills from analyzing a small number of systems using traditional imaging + manual analysis processes, to introducing and building skills that allow the student to analyze systems at scale, building and implementing toolsets to analyze systems spread across the network.  While attendance at CIFR is not a pre-requisite, E-CIFR builds on the CIFR skills of “what does intrusion or malware bad look like on a single system?” and provides the knowledge and skills to search for that same badness over hundreds or thousands of systems simultaneously.

Additionally, E-CIFR provides instruction on IR involving cloud architecture (AWS / Azure), endpoint security architecture such as Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR), log collection and analysis using ELK, common preparation concepts such as IR planning and hardening,

Throughout the week students will cover topics and lab exercises that include:  

Intro to AWS IR Intro to Azure IR Log collection and analysis with ELK
Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) Use of TimeSketch for image and timeline analysis Velociraptor for network investigations
IR Planning Threat Intelligence concepts and tooling Hardening Guidelines (ISO, PCI, CIS, etc.)
Group Tabletop exercise Capstone Attack Exercise attack Capstone Attack Exercise analysis
