Instrumenting the Environment to Detect Suspicious and Malicious Activity (IR114)

CISA is proud to offer the cybersecurity awareness webinar Incident Response Triage: Instrumenting the Environment to Detect Suspicious and Malicious Activity (IR114), on Tuesday, April 2, 2024, from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm EDT.  We are excited to share this information with stakeholders across the federal enterprise and nationally. 

The target audience for this webinar is non-technical and beginning incident responders. 

Attackers are becoming more sophisticated – and efficient. The time it takes an attacker to begin moving laterally once they have a foothold in the network is 79 minutes, compared to 9 hours in 2019. Security teams require exceptional network visibility to keep pace with top-level threat actors as these breakout times shrink. Triage training and tools can help incident response teams reduce the time an attacker dwells undetected within a network, mitigating attacks before threat actors can accomplish their missions. This course provides best practices for organizations to strengthen their detection and initial response capabilities for more effective triaging.

This webinar includes the following information and more:

  • Key guidance for organizations: Gain insights on enterprise instrumentation tools and methodologies that streamline incident response.

  • Job Aid: Receive a triage checklist to assist incident responders in efficiently collecting endpoint data for timely, actionable intelligence.

  • Case study: Explore a high-impact, global cyberattack, dissecting the tactics, techniques, and procedures that defined the incident.

  • Knowledge check: Conclude your learning experience with a knowledge check designed to ensure readiness in applying these critical concepts in a real-world incident.

Event Logistics:

  • Date: Tuesday, April 2, 2024 

  • Time: 11:00 am – 12:00 pm EDT 

  • Location: Online via WebEx 

  • CPE Credit: Participants can earn 1 CPE credit for attending this course. 

  • Note: Audio is through WebEx; there is no external dial-in. Closed captioning (English only) will be available during this training event. Previously recorded webinars are available on the CISA YouTube channel for playback in other languages, if required.

If you require a reasonable accommodation to fully participate in this virtual event, please contact cyberinsights@cisa.dhs.gov at least five business days prior to the training with the type of support you need.

Introduction to Log Management (IR210)

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) is proud to present the Introduction to Log Management (IR210) Cyber Range Training event Thursday, March 28, 2024, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. EDT. The 200-level training events are open to government employees and contractors across federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial government, educational partners, and critical infrastructure partners. Please use your organization email address when registering.

This course is ideal for those working in cybersecurity roles who are interested in learning technical incident response skills and requires active engagement from all participants. The course assumes a mixed audience (e.g., from disparate teams and organizations) of mixed capability. 

Log files provide the data that are the bread and butter of incident response, enabling network analysts and incident responders to investigate and diagnose issues and suspicious activity from network perimeter to epicenter. Participants will be introduced to basic principles of log management and configuration. Federal compliance regulations of log configuration and management including OMB Memo M-21-31 will also be introduced.

Experience these benefits and more:

  • Common attack methods: Understand the importance of the configuration, management, and analysis of logs for incident response and identify key processes of log management.
  • Practice in a realistic environment: Investigate and analyze log data for suspicious activity. Detect and correlate possible IOCs or malicious activity with threat intel. Exercises include configuring a DNS server, network device firewall, an operating system and more for propper logging.
  • Expert facilitation and peer discussion: Throughout the course, expert cybersecurity engineers will moderate discussions and conduct a recovery debrief for the exercises. Participants are also encouraged to help one another and offer relevant input to address peers' questions.

This exercise is a step-by-step, facilitated experience that uses a keyboard approach to understand these topics in a realistic technical environment.

Approved registrants must attend a mandatory student technical check the day before the training to establish a connection to the course content and lab environment.
