Steve Armstrong: Managing Incidents with CyberCPR

Over the next few weeks we’re going to announce the 44CON talks and workshops. Don’t forget to get your tickets!

Our next announcement is Steve Armstrong’s workshop Managing Incidents with CyberCPR

CyberCPR provides a secure environment for incident responders to discuss incidents, exchange files, review incident progress, provide automated analysis of evidence items and a range of other time-saving features based on practical experience.

This will be a hands on workshop, with students participating actively, accessing the demo CyberCPR system, creating incidents and adding evidence. In the workshop we will show the various aspects of the tool and how to get the most from it.

During this workshop we will explain the background security of the system, the integrity monitoring of the database, the file encryption of all evidence in the file vault and how sensitive incidents (unauthorized internal data access or child pornography) can be processed on the same system.

At the end of the workshop the attendees will have a good understanding of the capability of CyberCPR and how to operate its key features. They will leave with a VM of the CyberCPR ready to run on a laptop of their choosing.

Steve began working in the security arena in 1994 whilst serving in the UK Royal Air Force. He specialised in the technical aspects of IT security from 1997 onward and, before retiring from active duty, he lead the RAF’s penetration and TEMPEST testing teams. He founded Logically Secure in 2006 to provide specialist security advice to government departments, defense contractors, the online video gaming industry, and both music and film labels worldwide.

When not teaching for SANS, Steve provides penetration testing and incident response services for some of the biggest household names in the high street, online gaming and music media. To relax Steve enjoys playing Battlefield and FPS games to loud music.
