Syllabus

What you will learn

In this path, you will learn about the various techniques used by malware to persist, propagate, disrupt, modify and enumerate infected hosts and networks. This path will prepare you to statically and dynamically analyze malware, as well as document the analysis. It will also provide you with the skills to properly mitigate the malware intrusion. You will be able to apply these skills toward real-world security incidents and computer intrusions caused by malware.
