September 13–15, 2021 (Americas / EMEA evening)
This foundational course teaches students to identify and develop
pivot points or leads in investigations across multiple use cases.
Students will review the basic functions of open source tools and
learn when and why to use them in their research. They will apply
their skills to several scenarios drawn from frontline experience,
including executive-level RFIs, incident response investigations and
information operation campaigns.
As they work through these scenarios in a lab environment, students
will apply their knowledge of tools such as VirusTotal, Alienvault,
PassiveTotal and Facebook, and use advanced search engine techniques.
