Trainer: Ben Mauch

Skill Level: All

Date/Time: November 7-8, 2024, 9am-4pm EST

Are you looking to improve your detection capabilities? Learn how to create specific detections to identify early Indicators of Compromise (IOCs) in our Actionable Purple Team Simulation course. Designed for those looking to improve their offensive and defensive knowledge, students will gain hands-on experience in both the latest attack techniques and effective strategies to detect them.

During this course, students will run attacks on a lab system. After creating rules to detect the attack in Splunk, students will set up their Splunk system for a final lab. During this lab, a simulated attack will occur on their systems where they must detect and defend against the attacks.

This course will focus on the MITRE ATT&CK framework as well as several attacks that do not leverage a vulnerability. These attacks include weak credential harvest, lateral credential spray, SPN queries, and more. Students will take away a better understanding of early IOCs and how to identify these threats within their environment, regardless of the initial attack vector.

Students in this class can expect to:

  1. Improve detection capabilities
  2. Learn how to create specific detections to identify early IOCs
  3. Enhance offensive and defensive knowledge
  4. Gain hands-on experience in the latest attack techniques
  5. Learn effective strategies to detect attacks
  6. Perform hands-on attack simulations on a lab system
  7. Create rules to detect attacks in Splunk
  8. Set up a Splunk system for a final lab with a simulated attack
  9. Focus on the MITRE ATT&CK framework and various types of attacks including weak credential harvest, lateral credential spray, SPN queries, and more

This course qualifies for 14 hours of CPE credit hours.
