CZ4069 Concepts and Techniques for Malware Analysis
Malware analysis is a specialization within cyber security. Malware attacks are often detrimental to companies or organizations. When malware breaches an organization’s defences, the security team needs to act quickly to cure current infections and prevent it from re-occurring. Understanding the capabilities of the malware is critical to an organization’s ability to quickly create a signature to prevent the widespread of the malware across the network, to block further communications from the attacker. This understanding could also be translated to valuable knowledge in identifying existing security gaps within an organization’s system and fortify defences. This course aims to build a strong foundation to perform triage on malicious software using a variety of system and network monitoring utilities, a disassembler, a debugger and many other freely available tools.
