WEBINAR - Forensic State Analysis: A New Approach to Threat Hunting

Webinar Overview

If an attacker had a foothold in your network today, would you know it? Whether your defenses were successfully evaded or an analyst misinterpreted a critical alert, chances are the attacker has entrenched themselves for the long haul. The act of searching for these well-hidden and persistent threats is called threat hunting.

In this webcast, experienced Threat Hunters from Infocyte and SANS will discuss how to adapt Digital Forensics & Incident Response (DFIR) techniques to scalably and proactively hunt for unknown threats across an entire enterprise network. This approach is called Forensic State Analysis (FSA). Ultimately, FSA arms hunters with an effective and efficient methodology to hunt without relying solely on sophisticated security infrastructure, sensors, or big data.

Session: Powershell-Fu – Hunting on the Endpoint

Wednesday, August 3 • 10:45am - 11:30am
Type: Breaking Ground
Room: Florentine A
Presenter: Chris Gerritz, CEO, Infocyte

Hunting is the art of searching for badness and unauthorized activity on our own systems or network.  By knowing what is normal in our networks and what is possible of adversaries, the hunter can identify malware, signs of unauthorized activity, and indicators of compromise lurking within. In this session, we will explore how to hunt for malware and compromises on windows endpoints using built-in Powershell commands and scripts.  We will explore how to validate what’s running on our systems and identify some of the tell-tale signs that you’ve been pwned. The failure of automated prevention and detection coupled with a disappearing perimeter means hunting will become an increasingly important skill among defenders. The skills demonstrated will be useful on your own local system or remotely against hundreds or even thousands of systems.
