ONG-ISAC & Cloud Range Webinar

Title: Anomaly Detection

Learn how to perform frequency analysis to detect malware across hundreds of computers. Cloud Range’s industry-leading cyber range will be used to show how to enumerate processes, dynamic link libraries (DLLs), services, and users. We will also demonstrate how to analyze the results and how to verify whether they are malware or benign.

Learn to:

  • Identify Unusual Patterns in Computer Processes: Participants will learn how to list and analyze the frequency of computer functions across dozens of computer systems to identify anomalies.
  • Differentiate Benign and Harmful Anomalies: Participants will learn how to analyze the results from the data collection and use techniques to improve malware detection accuracy.
  • Apply analysis to other operating system functions: Participants will learn how to gather information to perform frequency analysis across systems using freely available tools.
