Digital Forensics for Malware Analysis

*** Please note that due the COVID-19, the HTCIA Ottawa Chapter “in-Person” events at the Ottawa Police Association Hall are canceled until further notice, and events will be hosted on ZOOM.

Topic: Digital Forensics for Malware Analysis

Bryan will discuss digital forensic science principles and practical uses - previewing/acquiring devices following a phishing incident. The risk is than an email on the endpoint may have included a weaponized attachment. Included will be a  discussion regarding a forensically-sound way of capturing that evidence and a few steps into identifying what's going on with the script in the document (including indicators such as IP addresses, URLs, for command and control).
