Introduction to Malware Analysis
Learn to perform dynamic and static malware analysis as an incident responder




Nearly every incident response that occurs in the cyber security field comes back to the initial intrusion vector: Malware. In this course, you will learn about the various types and categories of malware, their symptoms, and how they work. As an incident responder, it is imperative that you understand the symptoms of malware, but more importantly that you are able to understand WHAT that malware is doing, and quickly.

In this course, you will learn how to perform the basics of dynamic malware analysis, a tried and true method of understanding what an unknown binary (malware) is doing on an infected system. You will build your own malware analysis virtual lab to create a safe analysis environment using FlareVM, and then we will perform the analysis on a real-world piece of malware to fully understand the concepts covered in this course.

So, if you have ever wondered how to better understand malware, this is the course for you!
