This course will focus on introducing topics with brief lectures, followed
by hands-on exercises to further explore those topics. During the exercises,
instructors and teaching assistants will be available to answer questions
and provide guidance. Classes general start at 8:00 AM and wrap up at 5:00
PM. Please consult the schedule for this event for exact times. Breaks
mid-morning, lunch and mid-afternoon give you a chance to clear your mind or
continue working on exercises at your discretion.
If you looked at the other Cyber Fire course descriptions and are concerned
that they are too advanced, you are in the right spot.
If you have basic skills in network protocols, network packet capture,
viewing files in hex editors and/or calculating file hashes, you may want to
consider one of the more advanced courses.
The class requires laptops with virtualization software. We recommend VMWare products such as Workstation Pro or
Workstation Player for Windows and Linux or VMWare Fusion for OSX. VirtualBox will work, but you may be limited on advanced virtual machine functionality.
Setup instructions and a link to download the class Virtual Machine will be provided to registrants via email before the event.
