Incident Response training

This learning path starts with a high-level discussion of what happens at each phase of responding to an incident, followed by a technical deep dive into some of the more exciting parts of memory, network and host analysis and forensics. This learning path is for anyone wishing to apply learned forensics and offensive knowledge such as ethical hacking to the incident response process.
