As part of this new partnership, BitSec Forensics will use HBGary's memory forensics solutions such as Responder Pro in upcoming training courses such as "Live Data Acquisition and Analysis Course," a two-day course where participants will learn to recognize, properly seize and analyze the contents of physical memory (RAM) and also volatile system data using both open source and commercially available tools.
"Memory forensics is one of the hottest and most important areas in security today, " said Mike Webber, co-founder of BitSec Forensics. "Our upcoming Boston training course on this topic is completely sold out. Cybercriminals are increasingly injecting malware into memory because traditional security tools have not been able to detect and protect against it " until now. HBGary is one of the leaders in memory forensics technology and continues to deliver the best-in-breed solutions to detect, analyze and report malware in memory," said Mr. Webber.
BitSec Forensics expects to use HBGary's memory forensics solutions in more than a dozen training courses this year.
"We are very pleased to announce this partnership with BitSec Forensics, one of the premier forensics consultancy firms in the industry. Today hackers can detect anti-virus and other security solutions and build attacks that bypass these solutions. As a result, malware is increasingly being found in computer memory. By detecting and analyzing the malware in memory, HBGary can help provide organizations with the invaluable intelligence on the origin and capabilities of other malware found in their systems. With the right tools such as HBGary Responder and expert training from BitSec Forensics, Fortune 500 and other organizations can better protect their confidential data," said Greg Hoglund, CEO and founder of HBGary.
