Malware Analysis for Incident Response


Presenter: Craig Leabhart, Information Security Analyst

There are a lot of different incident scenarios that companies are faced with. While malware isn't involved in all of them it can pose a significant threat. The 2019 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report cites malware as being involved in 28 percent of breaches. Having even basic malware analysis capabilities can bolster your SOC and improve the effectiveness of your incident response.
