Course Description

To best support a digital forensic investigation, incident response teams need to be aware of the various incident response plans and processes available to them. In this CompTIA Security+ SYO-601 course, you'll start by exploring various incident response exercises, such as tabletop sessions, walkthroughs, and simulations. Then, you'll outline three fundamental attack frameworks: MITRE, The Diamond Model of Intrusion Analysis, and the Cyber Kill Chain.

Next, you'll examine different incident response plans types, including communication plans, disaster recovery plans, business continuity plans, and continuity of operation planning (COOP). You'll then identify key aspects of digital forensics, such as documentation/evidence, acquisition and integrity maintenance, preservation, e-discovery, data recovery, non-repudiation, and strategic intelligence and counterintelligence. Lastly, you'll outline how to utilize appropriate digital forensic data sources to support an investigation.
