Black Hat USA 2014: Digital Forensics (a.k.a. CSI Online)

As more and more crimes occur online, digital forensics becomes ever more important in identifying hostile entities who would do your company harm. Today's trio of Black Hat 2014 Trainings highlight the skills modern investigators need to pick up on breaches, collect evidence, and see things through to a successful conclusion.

A breach can occur in the blink of an eye and leave few obvious traces, so the ability to recognize and respond rapidly to such attacks is a vital capability for all organizations. Unfortunately, this requires specific training outside the bounds of most IT skillsets. Digital Forensics & Incident Response aims to pick up the slack, briefing you on the nitty-gritty of file system implementations, operating system design, and possible attack vectors. The class accompanies theory with crucial hands-on time, teaching you valuable forensics skills that will be immediately applicable in a variety of investigative scenarios.

Digital attacks tend to be fast and mostly silent, but an attacker's virtual footprints remain throughout the network. The authors of Network Forensics: Tracking Hackers Through Cyberspace will present Network Forensics: Black Hat Release, a fast-paced Training which will give you the tools you need to ferret out key evidence. Topics to be covered include carving out suspicious email attachments from packet captures, dissecting DNS-tunneled traffic, and using flow record analysis tools to pick out brute-force attacks and identify compromised systems, among many others.

Faced with the complex security investigations of the 21st century, many investigators can feel helpless. While deductive talents are certainly relevant, it takes a whole new skillset to harvest (and preserve!) evidence from today's virtual crime scenes successfully. Computer Forensics & Incident Response for Investigators aims to teach investigators to conduct data-breach investigations that adhere to a formal methodology, which will greatly increase the probability of the evidence being admissible in a court of law.
