Introduction to Malware Analysis

Instructor: Tyler Hudak

Due to the prevalence and business impact of malware, security professionals increasingly need the skills necessary to analyze worms, bots and trojan horses. This one day course will walk attendees through the concepts, techniques and processes for analyzing malware. Students will take a “from-the-wild” malware sample in a hands-on environment and learn how to analyze its characteristics and behavior to determine what it does and the risk it presents.
