Incident Response Takeaways from the MMA Challenge - Alissa Torres & Nik Roby

18 Jul 2012

The MMA challenge was run by Alissa and Nik at CEIC this year and was the best session I attended. The most interesting part was that they presented the same case to everyone in the room, with a range of tools available and we had the chance to see the different approaches taken to solve the problem. As you know there are many tools and techniques out there. It was great to see them applied to the same case.

Incident responders are dealing with some of the most demanding and technically challenging situations facing the information security field today. Successfully battling network intrusions requires a wide gamut of skills such as analyzing network traffic, and parsing physical memory dumps and host-based images.
