deep knowledge technical trainings

APRIL 17 - 25 @ MOVENPICK AMSTERDAM

Linux Forensics Inspection and Incident Response at Scale (Ams)

This course takes on an “attack vs detection” approach in a condensed format. This class is intended for students who have basic understanding of Linux and have to deal with advanced threats. Furthermore, the course is also interesting for experienced DFIR/SOC/CERT players who aim to dig deeper into understanding of Linux internals and corresponding network attack analysis techniques, detection and response.

Full access to the PurpleLabs environment for 30 days post-training!


Through the hands-on labs, you will gain a perfect understanding of important DFIR Linux/Network internals and investigation steps needed to get the full picture of post-exploitation activities and artifacts left behind. At scale.

Attackers constantly find new ways to attack and infect Linux boxes using more and more sophisticated techniques and tools. As defenders we need to stay up to date with adversaries, understand their TTPs and be able to respond quickly. The combination of low-level network and endpoint visibility is crucial to achieve that goal. For DFIR needs we could go even further with proactive forensics inspections. This training will guide you through different attack-detection-inspection-response use-cases and teach critical aspects of how to handle Linux incidents properly.
