Overview



Join FOR572: Advanced Network Forensics Analysis course author and instructor Phil Hagen as he introduces the brand-new SANS Network Forensic Poster, which will be mailed worldwide in late May. Phil will browse the poster contents and highlight use cases that will help improve your network forensic capabilities. He will also discuss the latest release of the free SOF-ELK analytics VM appliance and show some examples of how it can help make quick work of even massive volumes of forensic data - whether for Network Forensics, Disk-based Forensics, or Security Operations.

The new Network Forensics & Analysis Poster has been created by FOR572 Advanced Network Forensics Analysis course author and SANS certified instructor Phil Hagen with support from the SANS DFIR Faculty. It will be available to download here in the next weeks. To receive a hard copy of the poster, register here or join us at the DFIR Summit in June.

Speaker Bio

Philip Hagen

Phil Hagen is the course lead and author of FOR572, Advanced Network Forensics and Analysis, a course that provides a hands-on curriculum on the skills necessary to perform investigations of network-based incidents, where the hard drives or memory of compromised systems are often missing. He is also a DFIR Strategist at Red Canary. Phil started his career as part of a specialization within the computer science department at the U.S. Air Force Academy, where he focused on network security and was an inaugural member of the computer security extracurricular group. He served in the U.S. Air Force as a communications officer at Beale AFB and the Pentagon, and then in 2003 Phil moved over to a position with a government contractor, providing technical services for various IT and information security projects. Now 18 years later, Phil's work has spanned the full life cycle of attacks--tool development, deployment, operational and investigative aftermath--giving him a rare opportunity to provide deep insight into the artifacts left behind. Phil has covered deep technical tasks, management of an entire computer forensic services portfolio and executive responsibilities. He's supported systems that demanded 24x7x365 functionality, managed a team of 85 computer forensic professionals in the national security sector, and provided forensic consulting services for law enforcement, government, and commercial clients. Phil also spends time developing and maintaining the SOF-ELK distribution. SOF-ELK is a virtual appliance that is pre-configured with the ELK stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana), and it is provided as a free tool to help the DFIR Community boost case efficiency and effectiveness. Phil is a mentor and teacher at heart, one of his biggest source of professional pride.
