Afternoon Track I: How to be an Analyst presented at flocon 2018

by Angela Horneman, Don Mckeon,

Summary : This two session training covers basic skills necessary to be an effective cyber analyst. Analytic acumen or “how to think” is the topic for the morning session. This session will focus on the underlying analytical skillset. The session will start with an introduction to the analytic process and then cover logical fallacies and awareness of assumptions and biases. Practical application of portions of the analytic process will be the topic of the afternoon session. Here we will step into the shoes of Alex Smith, a SOC team lead for ACME Corporation, as he encounters a number of challenging situations. In each situation, you will dictate what actions Alex takes. These decisions have consequences as their outcomes could save or doom ACME Corporation.
