  • Speaker: Jason Fossen

Why has PowerShell become so popular for ransomware, hacking tools, cloud computing, and security automation? 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 Security Essentials (SEC401), then this presentation is especially for you. You can get the latest version of PowerShell for macOS, Linux or Windows from https://github.com/powershell/ for free.
