Information Security

Who is keeping your Information Secure?

Information is an essential resource for the growth and success of every business. In today's information-driven economy, keeping your company's vital data secure is the responsibility of every employee in your company. From guarding against Social Engineering Attacks to creating an effective Incident Response Plan, everyone in your organization has to take part in keeping your information secure.

A recent study by the Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) cited human error as the most common cause of information security breaches, with some 80 percent of respondents believing this human error was caused by a lack of security knowledge, training, or failure to follow security procedures.

Computer hacking forensic investigation is the process of detecting hacking attacks and properly extracting evidence to report the crime and conduct audits to prevent future attacks. Computer forensics is simply the application of computer investigation and analysis techniques in the interests of determining potential legal evidence. Evidence might be sought in a wide range of computer crime or misuse, including but not limited to theft of trade secrets, theft of or destruction of intellectual property, and fraud. CHFI investigators can draw on an array of methods for discovering data that resides in a computer system, or recovering deleted, encrypted, or damaged file information.

Windows Infrastructure Hardening has become a mandatory step performed on a regular basis by any organization that sees security as a priority.

Businesses nowadays are almost fully dependent on IT services, making the hardening and securing processes even more intense. The number of possible attack surfaces has emerged exponentially in direct relation to the increasingly competitive field of current technology we are witnessing where developers try to achieve more and more functionality from implemented solutions and applications.

This 3 day training deep dives into the key aspects of solving infrastructure-related problems by appreciating the key elements of how Windows Internal Security mechanisms actually work and how it can be further optimized without jeopardizing or easing an organization’s IT Environment configuration settings which becomes common as time passes. Some of the highlights of this course are techniques used in Kernel Debugging, Malware hunting, deep diving into BitLocker and the automation of the whole hardening process.
