Duration: 5 days / 51 hours
The Intrusion Analysis & Digital Forensics Essentials (IADFE) course is the first cross discipline course of its' kind that covers the essential knowledge and skills needed for intrusion detection, incident handling, computer/network forensics and malware reverse engineering. This course raises the bar and sets a new security baseline for aspiring Intrusion Analysis and Digital Forensics professionals. Every team member should take this course before embarking upon their very own, more specialised, career path. Following this course a student may challenge the CREST Practitioner Intrusion Analyst (CPIA) exam and the CREST Registered Intrusion Analyst (CRIA) core skils exam, which confers CREST Registered status to the individual.
THE STORY OF AN ATTACK FROM START TO FINISH ..... How to detect an attack, how to handle it, how to trace and acquire the evidence, investigate, analyse and re-construct the incident.
