Today, cybersecurity professionals recognize that they can’t possibly prevent every breach, but they can substantially reduce risk by quickly identifying and blocking breaches as they happen. Investigating The Cyber Breach: The Digital Forensics Guide for the Network Engineer is the first comprehensive guide to doing just that. Writing for working networking and security professionals, senior cybersecurity experts Joseph Muñiz and Aamir Lakhani show exactly how to hunt attackers, track their movements within networks, and halt their data exfiltration and thefts of intellectual property. Muñiz and Lakhani show how to use tools ranging from open source software to enterprise solutions: tools for cloning, data analytics, network and endpoint breach detection, case management, monitoring, analysis, and more. Unlike previous digital forensics books focused primarily on collecting evidence for later prosecution, this one focuses on using digital forensics tools to hunt threats, improve threat intelligence, root out dormant malware, and respond quickly and effectively to network compromises happening right now.
