responding to computer incidents, and a detailed description of how
attackers undermine systems so you can prepare for, detect, and
respond to them.
In addition, the course explores the legal issues associated with
responding to computer attacks, including employee monitoring,
working with law enforcement, and handling evidence. Finally,
students will participate in a hands-on workshop that focuses on
scanning, exploiting, and defending systems. This course will enable
you to discover the holes in your system before the bad guys do!
The course is particularly well-suited to individuals who lead or are
a part of an incident handling team. General security practitioners,
system administrators, and security architects will benefit by
understanding how to design, build, and operate their systems to
prevent, detect, and respond to attacks.

“This course gives attendees a view into the hacker mindset,

insight into the findings that we receive from our external
and application pen tests, and the tools that the SecOps
team members need to master to track and hunt hackers.”

Jason Fossen
In this talk, Jason Fossen, SANS Institute Fellow and SEC505 author, will rummage
around inside the guts of Windows while on the lookout for malware, using a
free tool named Process Hacker (similar to Process Explorer, but open-source).
Understanding processes, threads, drivers, handles, and other OS internals
is important for analyzing malware, understanding exploits, doing forensics,
troubleshooting, and hardening the OS. If you have a laptop, get Process Hacker
from http://processhacker.sourceforge.net and together we’ll take a peek
under the GUI to learn about Windows internals. This talk also helps to prepare
attendees for several of the courses at the conference by presenting key OS
concepts like virtual memory, modules, security access tokens, and more.
