Basic Network Analysis 102 Price: $3,750

Training promotions may be available, contact a training consultant at 240-667-7507 for more information!

In this course the students will learn how to use a variety of tools to assist them in their analysis. The concepts of low-level protocol analysis will be explored so the students can understand the network traffic at the binary level. The methods of live memory analysis will be explored in preparation of understanding the fundamentals of malware analysis. The students will be introduced to the procedures of incident response and methods of incident escalation. The class will conclude with 3 subsequent battle problems that flex the skills of both courses.
