Overview

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 introductory briefing, Lenny Zeltser demonstrates key aspects of this process, walking you through behavioral analysis of a malware specimen by using several free tools.

You will see practical techniques in action and understand how behavioral analysis of malware 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). Join this briefing to start learning how to turn malware inside out! It'll be fun.
