Most pentesters have little knowledge regarding the residual trace data left behind by their activities. Likewise, most forensic investigators have only a rudimentary knowledge of how the attacks they investigate actually took place. What if you could see things from both sides? What if you could see both the attack as it happened, as well as the indicators of compromise (IOCs) left behind by the breach? Well, now you can. In Hack it, and Track it, experts from Trustwave SpiderLabs Network Penetration Testing team, and PSC’s Digital Forensics and Incident Response team will provide you with the opportunity to both compromise a target and forensically investigate that breach. You will use cutting edge tools and techniques from both disciplines which will undoubtedly help make you either a better penetration tester, or a better forensic investigator. Through the use of virtual machines, you will be led through three different real world scenarios typically seen by the experts at SpiderLabs. In each scenario, you will have to use your skills to compromise a host, and extract target data. Then, you will utilize the IOCs and trace evidence left behind by your activities to “tell the story” of what took place and how. This is the one of kind class and not to be missed! It will open up the eyes and minds of even the most seasoned pentesters or forensics investigators to a world of knowledge they likely no very little about. Do not miss your opportunity to Hack it, and Track it!
