PowerShell 2020: State of the Art/Hack/Infection

  • Jason Fossen
  • Sunday, April 5th, 7:15pm - 9:15pm

Why has PowerShell become so popular for ransomware, hacking tools, cloud computing, and security automation? Several courses at SANS include some amount of PowerShell now, such as for penetration testing, forensics, auditing, and log analysis. But isn't PowerShell just another command shell? NO! Attend this talk by SANS Faculty Fellow Jason Fossen to see what PowerShell really is, how it's being used (and abused) today, and future trends, like PowerShell on Linux. If you're unfamiliar with PowerShell or you're taking a SANS course with PowerShell labs, like SEC401, then this presentation is especially for you. You are welcome to bring your laptop to the talk too -- you can get the latest version of PowerShell for macOS, Linux or Windows from https://github.com/powershell/ (it's open source).
