Reverse engineering is a vitally important skill for today’s expert security professional. Everything from reverse engineering malware to discovering vulnerabilities in binaries is required in order to properly secure an organization from today’s ever evolving threats.In this five day hands-on course, you will gain the necessary binary analysis skills to discover the true nature of any Windows binary. You will learn how to recognize the high level language constructs (such as branching statements, looping functions and network socket code) critical to performing a thorough and professional reverse engineering analysis of a binary. After learning these important introductory skills, you will advance to the analysis of:
Additionally you will learn how to recognize the features modern optimizing compilers, including the gcc 4.x family of compilers and the ubiquitous Visual Studio .NET. InfoSec Institute will train you on the standard reverse engineering programs IDA Pro,Ollydbg, and Softice. You will also learn how to use various hex editors, binary analysis programs, and code coverage analyzers.
HOW YOU’LL BENEFIT:
Learn from Advanced Reversing Experts: All of the instructors for InfoSec Institute’s Reverse Engineering course actively work in the field of incident response or security research. Our instructors have spoken at high-profile conferences (such as the Black Hat Briefings, the RSA Security Conference, and the Pentagon Security Forum) and industry events.

Many incident response situations and computer forensics investigations cannot be completed accurately or thoroughly without understanding the runtime nature of a binary. Hackers increasingly use customized trojans that are not detected by antivirus which can only be analyzed and traced back to the original attacker via reverse engineering. Additionally, many binary programs contain vulnerabilities, such as buffer overflows and the use of very weak cryptographic algorithms. The only way to discover these critical vulnerabilities for closed-source programs is to reverse engineer them. Reverse engineering is also required in order to understand complex binary obfuscation schemes used by copy protection vendors, as well as obfuscation put in place by commercial software vendors.

The material was very good, labs were content rich and explained what was going on when necessary. The instructor provided an excellent learning environment tying in his vast experience with the massive amount of material. He also knew when to take a break from material when our heads were spinning to let us absorb what we were taking in.
Obtaining a certification like the CREA demonstrates that you are a knowledgeable security professional, dedicated to standing out among your peers. Reverse Engineering positions are highly technical, and becoming certified establishes a base-line of credibility to your resume that will help you stand out when applying for positions.
Malware Analysts are one of the fastest growing careers in the tech industry. As commerce in the United States continues its shift to digitization, businesses have recognized the need to keep their systems safe from cyber threats. As this shift continues to progress, the need for certified malware analysts has continued to rise.

Our small class sizes offer you intimate training with the most skilled professionals in the field, who you’ll get the opportunity to get one-on-one feedback from on any itching questions you might have.
We require our students have a firm understanding of the Windows Operating System, computer architecture concepts, and a grasp of the TCP/IP protocols. If you are unsure if you meet these prerequisites, contact us and we can give you a brief network security training skill check.
We cover all of the exam material that you will encounter on the CREA, which is the premier reverse engineering certification in the industry. You’ll learn how to unpack malware, work with encrypted binaries, understand hashing functions, monitor registry changes, create sandbox environments to isolate malware, and a host of other skills.
We take great care to make sure our online students receive the same benefits and training as our in-person participants. On top of that, we offer our students an Exam Pass Guarantee, so that you can focus all your energy on course material without worrying about exam pass rates!
The CREA is more focused on practical and conceptual knowledge of reverse engineering, with both theoretical and hands-on portions on the exam. Other certifications like the GREM tend to be more expensive and are focused around analysis of malware samples.
At InfoSec Institute we take a unique approach to our training in that we’ve adopted a Boot Camp style. This consists of five days of intensive, hands-on instruction from the most skilled malware analysts in the industry. Our program can be completed either online or in-person—whichever style fits your schedule better!
All of the tools you need to attend the course will be provided.
