The modern cybersecurity landscape is an escalating arms race between attackers and defenders - attackers are constantly researching and building new techniques and tools while defenders try to identify, detect, and respond to them. Using automation tools that emulate attacker methodologies, defenders can perform simple, repeatable attacks to drive their detection engineering efforts, security validation tasks, and ultimately improve processes.
This entry level class will take students through the basics of setting up and using Operator to perform basic adversary emulation tasks and investigate how that can be used to create a continuous defensive evaluation process.
