Focused Black Hat 2013 Trainings Examine Incident Response, Malware

A posting from Dark Reading In there  Security  management section:

Verizon’s 2013 DBIR indicates that 40% of breaches involved malware, and rapid analysis often falls to incident responders. Malware Analysis: Black Hat Edition provides a rapid intro to the tools and methodologies of Windows malware analysis. Attendees will learn how to observe malware’s actions through disassembly and debugging, extract host and network-based indicators, and zeroing in on the Windows APIs most used by malware authors. Hands-on labs will abound, and everyone will receive a copy of Mike Sikorski’s “Practical Malware Analysis.”

Upon the Training’s completion, students will be able to effectively preserve and analyze a large number of digital evidence sources, skills that are immediately useful in a number of investigative scenarios.
