Detecting and Disrupting Threat Actors with CrowdStrike Falcon Counter Adversary Operations

The Counter Adversary Operations labs allow you to learn how to use threat intelligence to accelerate response by making better, faster security decisions. You’ll start by detecting a threat and identifying the adversary behind the attack. Then, dig deeper by exploring the detonation of the payload in the integrated CrowdStrike Sandbox. Next, you will examine the tradecraft of the adversary behind the attack and implement measures to prevent future attacks. After identifying the adversary, expand your investigation by reviewing detailed reports to proactively deploy countermeasures and secure your environment. Then, explore the dark web to see if sensitive data from your organization has been compromised. Finally, create new notification rules to alert you when malicious activity surrounding your organization is detected on the dark web.
