We’re excited to announce that OISF will be at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas this August for Black Hat USA, with our experts hosting a four-day power training on Intrusion Detection and Threat Hunting with Open Source Tools.

Our goal with this training is to help attendees build a foundation for an effective threat hunting program, as well as provide ideas and strategies to help increase the efficiency of existing programs. When it comes to detecting threat actors and malware operations, you can’t leave stones unturned.

If you’re a beginner in the open source space looking to mature your skills, this comprehensive training is a can’t-miss. Join us on August 1-4 at Black Hat USA and take your threat hunting capabilities to the next level.

This course will cover the fundamental aspects of Suricata such as rule comprehension, managing rule sets, validating alerts, working through false positives/negatives and customizing rules to provide more network traffic visibility. We’ll dive into an in-depth analysis of network traffic and the development of threat hunting strategies to detect anomalous or malicious activity with tools such as Moloch, Kibana and CyberChef. Additionally, we’ll have several hands-on, real-world exercises to reinforce the detection techniques and tactics explained throughout the course.

Early bird pricing for the training ends on May 22, so act fast!
