Magnet Forensics Training Offers Incident Response Techniques and All Courses Now Count Toward CPE Credits

If you’re looking to dive deep into incident response techniques and expand your knowledge of advanced forensics, then be the first to reserve your spot for our latest course, Magnet AXIOM Incident Response Examinations (AX310)!

This is an expert-level four-day training course. It is designed to give you the knowledge and skills needed to track incidents where unauthorized computer access and file usage has taken place on a computer system. This course utilizes Magnet AXIOM and third-party tools to explore the evidence in greater depth by learning about volatile data collection. An incident response toolkit will be created to capture volatile data in class that students can take with them for use in applications beyond the classroom.

AX310 Provides a Look Incident Response Techniques and Advanced Forensics

In this course, a deeper understanding of investigating incidents involving malware and network intrusions into Windows computers will be provided. Students will conduct a static analysis of malware by building a virtual environment and use Kali Linux in that environment to sandbox malware.

After the static analysis of the malware, students will activate the malware in the virtual environment and conduct a dynamic analysis. They will also capture packets during the malware activation to capture information from the malware regarding its command and control server. An analysis of the captured information from the network communication will then be conducted to determine what the malware is designed to do, such as spread laterally on the network, escalate user privileges, create new users, search for PII or send collected data back to the command and control server. 

By searching through artifacts like Windows Ptrefetch, SRUM, AMCACHE, Jumplists, LNK files, SHIMCACHE, MUICACHE, UserAssist, Windows Event logs, and the $Logfile, participants will determine the initial attack vector of the malware and the chain of events that took place thereafter.
