Host-based Incident Response

Learning objectives

Participants will learn the basics of Incident Response and forensic investigations by way of a fictional hacker attack. Thus the seminar starts off with a scenario that is explained step by step and which is accompanied by various exercises with different technologies and systems. 

As part of training, measures will be developed and subsequently implemented. This includes the analysis of log files, the definition of Indicators of Compromise (IoC), as well as the classical forensic analysis of file systems. 

Demarcation: The seminar teaches incident response and forensics fundamentals deployed in conjunction with workstations and servers. Locating and resolving network anomalies is covered in the “Incident Response Networks” course.
