Windows Enterprise Incident Response

What does crime scene investigation look like if the scene is virtual? This Mandiant course teaches the fundamental investigative techniques you need to respond to cyber threats. You'll learn to conduct rapid triage on a system to determine whether it is compromised, uncover evidence of initial attack vectors, recognize persistence mechanisms and investigate an incident throughout an enterprise. Discover how attackers move around in a compromised Windows environment and explore information management that enriches the investigative process and bolsters an enterprise security program.

“When you’re looking for how to get better as an incident responder, you’re looking for certain assumptions on the part of the attacker. You’re asking yourself  what evidence is being created, what investigative tools do I have that the attacker is just not aware of, or might not be aware of?”

Course Modules

This cybersecurity course provides a thorough understanding of fundamental investigative techniques needed to respond to today’s cyber threats. Although this course is focused on Windows-based systems and servers, the techniques and investigative processes can be applied to all systems and applications. Join Mandiant experts in detailed discussions of common forms of endpoint, network and file-based forensic evidence collection and their limitations.

Module 1: Single System Analysis

Identify core sources of evidence and then analyze the collected evidence. Determine which IoCs will provide the most value to an investigation. Construct a timeline of events to build a narrative of an attack.

Module 2: Enterprise Response

Differentiate single system and enterprise evidence. Combine evidence from multiple systems to construct a more complete narrative of an attack. Scope the incident through the attack lifecycle.

Module 3: Response Management

Outline investigation management plans and detail the considerations for remediation actions and timing. Explain the importance of validating remediation.

Module 4: Threat Hunting

Differentiate threat hunting from incident response. Describe the threat hunting process and develop and implement a threat hunting program.
