About SANS Digital Forensics and Incident Response

Over 80% of all breach victims learn of a compromise from third-party notifications, not from internal security teams. In most cases, adversaries have been rummaging through your network undetected for months or even years.

Incident response tactics and procedures have evolved rapidly over the past several years. Data breaches and intrusions are growing more complex. Adversaries are no longer compromising one or two systems in your enterprise; they are compromising hundreds. Your team can no longer afford antiquated incident response techniques that fail to properly identify compromised systems, provide ineffective containment of the breach, and ultimately fail to rapidly remediate the incident.

A thorough understanding of many detailed areas is required for success, including a mastery of the following fundamental skills covered by the SANS Digital Forensics and Incident Response (DFIR) curriculum:

A properly trained incident responder could be the only defense an organization has during a compromise. As a forensics investigator, you need to know what you're up against, and you need to have the most up-to-date knowledge of how to detect and fight it - that is what SANS DFIR classes will teach you.

SANS Incident Response training courses are extremely cutting edge. Our two leading incident response courses are SANS FOR508: Advanced Incident Response and SANS FOR572: Advanced Network Forensics.
