Malware analysis and memory forensics are powerful analysis and investigative techniques used in reverse engineering, digital forensics and incident response. Adversaries are becoming more sophisticated and carrying out advanced malware attacks on critical infrastructures, Data Centers, private and public organizations. This makes detecting, responding and investigating such intrusions increasingly critical for information security professionals. Malware analysis and memory forensics have become a must-have skill for fighting advanced malwares, targeted attacks and security breaches.
This course will introduce attendees to basics of malware analysis,reverse engineering, Windows internals and memory forensics. It will then gradually progress deeper into more advanced concepts of memory forensics.
This course uses hands-on labs using real world malware samples and infected memory images (Crimewares, APT malwares, Rootkits etc) to help attendees gain better understanding of the subject. The training also shows how these techniques can be incorporated in a sandbox to automate malware analysis. After taking this course attendees will be equipped with skill to analyze, investigate and respond to malware related incidents.
Students will be provided with:
– Course material
– Lab solution material
– Videos used in the course
– Malware samples used in the course/labs
– Memory Images used in the course/labs
– Custom Scripts
– Linux VM (to be opened with VMware Workstation/Fusion) containing necessary tools and samples
