The inaugural conINT Intelligence Conference was held on October 17th and 18th, 2020.

conINT is a two-day INTelligence conference and fundraising event hosted by The Many Hats Club, Trace Labs, and the National Child Protection Task Force (NCPTF). Held live on Twitch this year, attendees had the opportunity to develop intelligence acquisition and analysis skills, learn about digital investigation, and more with the first full day of presentations and hands-on technical workshops. The second day of conINT allowed attendees to apply these skills by assisting international law enforcement agencies in locating missing persons from real cases using OSINT techniques during the six-hour Trace Labs OSINT Search Party CTF.

The exam covers knowledge and skills related to security concepts, security monitoring, host-based analysis, network intrusion analysis, and security policies and procedures to help teach the essentials of preventing, detecting, and responding to incidents and breaches.

Exam Information

The CyberOps Associate’s corresponding exam is Understanding Cisco Cybersecurity Operations Fundamentals (CBROPS 200–201), taken at one of Pearson VUE’s testing centers available worldwide (and online, temporarily, due to the COVID-19 pandemic). …

The RIT Computing Security Lab

In RIT’s Computer System Forensics class, students learn basic incident response procedures as well as methods to uncover and investigate the activities of computer users. Students also learn to employ activities needed to gather and preserve evidence to be presented in court cases. Some of the concepts discussed in class are incident response reporting, forensic imaging, Linux and Windows file systems and steganography.

While the class is well-designed and the concepts presented are highly applicable, assignments and labs can grow a bit stale because the two professors that regularly teach the class are actively involved in research. Such was the case for Spring 2019's memory acquisition and analysis lab, which instructs on how to use the Linux Memory Extractor (LiME) and the Volatility Framework to analyze memory images for system information and malware infections. …
