FOR408: Windows Forensic Analysis
Master Windows Forensics – “You can’t protect what you don’t know about.”
Every organization must prepare for cyber-crime occurring on their computer systems and within their networks. Demand has never been higher for analysts who can investigate crimes like fraud, insider threats, industrial espionage, employee misuse, and computer intrusions. Government agencies increasingly require trained media exploitation specialists to recover key intelligence from Windows systems. To help solve these cases, SANS is training a new cadre of the world’s best digital forensic professionals, incident responders, and media exploitation masters capable of piecing together what happened on computer systems second by second.
FOR408: Windows Forensic Analysis focuses on building in-depth digital forensics knowledge of the Microsoft Windows operating systems. You can’t protect what you don’t know about, and understanding forensic capabilities and artifacts is a core component of information security. Learn to recover, analyze, and authenticate forensic data on Windows systems. Understand how to track detailed user activity on your network and how to organize findings for use in incident response, internal investigations, and civil/criminal litigation. Use your new skills for validating security tools, enhancing vulnerability assessments, identifying insider threats, tracking hackers, and improving security policies. Whether you know it or not, Windows is silently recording an unimaginable amount of data about you and your users.
FOR408 teaches you how to mine this mountain of data.
Proper analysis requires real data for students to examine. The completely updated FOR408 course trains digital forensic analysts through a series of new hands-on laboratory exercises that incorporate evidence found on the latest Microsoft technologies (Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1, Windows 10, Office and Office365, cloud storage, Sharepoint, Exchange, Outlook). Students leave the course armed with the latest tools and techniques and prepared to investigate even the most complicated systems they might encounter. Nothing is left out – attendees learn to analyze everything from legacy Windows XP systems to just discovered Windows 10 artifacts.
