Walking into an incident response situation can be intimidating. This course will teach you how to analyze the endpoint traffic, perform memory dump analysis, and begin to piece together the story of what happened.

What you'll learn

In an incident response scenario, gathering artifacts for analysis can be stressful. In this course, Incident Response: Host Analysis, you'll learn how to analyze host artifacts in a compromised environment. First, you'll evaluate an endpoint to determine root cause of an incident.

When you're finished with this course, you'll have the skills necessary to operate as an incident response host analyst and understand how to synchronize with the other phases of incident response.
