Course overview

You may have gotten in, but an ethical hacker still needs to be able to get out. This three-video course teaches the fundamentals of covering your tracks like a black hat, from evidence elimination and anti-forensics actions (removing traces of attacks, deleting and editing logs, preventing data recovery by wiping disk drives) to log tampering and anti-incident response. Includes definitions, tools and strategies for both Windows and Linux.
