Malware Analysis for Incident Responders: Getting Started

  • Lenny Zeltser
  • Monday, February 15th, 7:15pm - 9:15pm

Knowing how to analyze malware has become a critical skill for incident responders and forensic investigators. A good way to get started with such efforts involves examining how malicious software behaves in a controlled laboratory environment. In this two-hour seminar briefing, Lenny Zeltser demonstrates key aspects of this process, walking you through behavioral analysis of a malware specimen by using several free tools and even peeking into the world of code analysis.

You will see practical techniques in action and understand how malware analysis will help you to triage the incident to assess key capabilities of the malicious software. You will also learn how to determine ways of identifying this malware on systems in your environment by establishing indicators of compromise (IOCs). This seminar will help you start learning how to turn malware inside out.
