Understanding the mechanics of malware attacks is critical for remediation and for preventing similar attempts in the future. Malware analysis can provide valuable insights into the adversary’s goals, especially when they are targeted. While cloud based malware analysis tools exist, they are largely inflexible. An in-house lab environment can offer more customization, automation and enhanced capabilities without the potential risk of metadata leakage. This lab can then also be used to review potential solutions to prevent and mitigate these threat vectors.
In this talk we’ll explore how to setup and automate your own lab to provide greater insight into such attacks, build your threat intelligence, validate solutions and train your team.
