An unflinching hacker advances through treacherous binary as they become not only the detective but the murderer in this tertiary tale of penetration and attribution. In the world of cyber security, it is no longer acceptable to be on the blue team or the red team; the purple team is the only one that can win against our unforeseen adversaries. Analysts must learn how to attack the very systems they protect to understand the mindset of their adversary and find the valuable artifacts they leave behind.
In this course students will participate in hands-on labs that will teach them attack cycles. It will teach them how to bypass standard security measures using real-world scenarios and discover the artifacts being produced by these attacks both locally and in the cloud.
