Michael Wylie brings to you an introductory hands-on fundamental malware analysis workshop. IT and Cybersecurity professionals will learn the basic skills necessary to safely analyze the characteristics and behavior of malware. Students will walk away with practical techniques and methodologies that can be immediately applied to statically and dynamically analyzing software with an emphasis on malicious software. Gone are the days where incident responders reformat infected systems destroying valuable evidence. Preserving and analyzing malware artifacts will give attendees the skills to understand, at a high level, the techniques and malicious intents of malware that defeated their security controls. Once the threat is understood, additional detective and preventive controls can be put in place resulting in faster response. Throughout this workshop, students will learn about and how to work on labs involving both static and dynamic software analysis. Before diving in, students will be given an overview of malware analysis and be educated on safe responsible malware detonation to minimize the risk of spreading malware. Tools students will explore include: Strings, Wireshark, PEstudio, ProcMon, HxD, Process Hacker, Process Explorer, and more.
